The Call

From pole to pole
And pole to pole
Wires soar and sing and soar
Higher, lower, up and higher
(Wire wire wire wire),

Over mountains,
Under sun;
Cross a prairie
(Smoothly done),

Pole to pole
And pole to pole;
Sing! you wires,
Sing! and run

Higher, lower, up and higher
(Wire wire wire wire),
Over mountains,
Under sun;
Fly a valley
(Smoothly done!),

Pole to pole to pole to pole to pole.
Higher mountains,
Higher sun;
Pole to pole to pole to pole;
Final hill
Now begun;

Pole to pole
Pole to pole
(Wire wire wire)
Higher higher higher,
RING!
