The Lyrics

Well a new disease has found us
And we're told to stay at home
There's a virus all around us
And it spreads if we all roam

So we live in isolation
But I think that it is time
That we have a tune to get it off our minds

So I swear to you this isn't a coronavirus song
It will never speak of coughing or of all that has gone wrong
It won't mention social distance or the things that you must quit
'Cause this song is here to help us all forget

So just pull your gloves on tighter
And just cover up your face
While these lyrics make things brighter
Keeping darker thoughts away

So forget your trouble
Stay in your bubble
And drink a double

And I swear to you this isn't a coronavirus song
It won't talk of COVID-19 or of fever lasting long
It won't mention ventilators or the shortage of T.P.
'Cause this song is here to set your worries free

You can't go to shut-down markets
You can't go to cancelled shows
But you've got these happy lyrics
Here to lift you from your lows

It'll make you cheery
Just sing out clearly
But don't come near me

Doo wop doo wop
Doo wop doo wop
Doo wop doo wop
Doo wop doo wop

This was a great song but I keep wondering when you're finally going to do a song parody about the Coronavirus! Yet I'll keep this one in mind to help me get over these dark times! Haha
