Mama heard noises, those sounds in the night

Growing much louder, they gave her a fright

Voices came calling, symphonies would play

Nowhere was an orchestra, much to mama’s dismay

No one to talk to, I think mama was cracked

But she insisted these noises, just keep coming back

Turns out she’s not crazy, not one little bit

The doctor, she said, put a finger on it

The music and voices, she heard them, quite clear

All on account of her musical ear


Musical ear syndrome (MES) describes a condition seen in people who have hearing loss and subsequently develop auditory hallucinations. (Google)
