She had a music box
when she was young
a ballerina stood
awaiting it to run

And when the music played
she would whirl
and whirl and whirl and whirl
just like a ballerina girl

She called it furry leaves
when she was done
played it in the night
until the rising sun

And she would dance
and dance and dance and dance
just like a ballerina girl

Then one day she went into a store
looking for that music
that she adored

And when she said the name
again again again again
they called it
Fur Elise
