Your ferromagnet has me in its spell
Your ferromagnet that you wield so well
The field from your net spins is felt by mine
And every atom's aching to align

That strong attraction I can feel inside
And ev'ry domain wall now starts its ride

Some domains will go
Other ones will grow
In a spin, loving the spin I'm in
Caught in our ferromagnetic love!
