The Lyrics

Requires no explanation.

China’s got this flu
Not sure how much, says the government
Plastered on all newspaper fronts
Don’t know if they’ve lied
Read all of the buzz though
It’s big (so big though!)
More so (than my job though!)
Can’t quite get over this so-called (COVID-19!)
Who would, who would, refuse this hoopla?
Although it won’t be like the swine flu

Yet there’s no known vaccine
And they’re making a scene everywhere
Visit the store
Same people, same bore
Pierced by that headline

Tension in the air
Virus comes west, the memes come pouring in
Just hanging on what that one case says
But not me (no never!)
Nope, not me (I’ll just weather!)
My stockpiling plan is better (so just remember!)
Who’ll buy, who’ll buy, who’ll buy too much though
And they advised it on BBC Radio…

Better keep my hands clean
Improve personal hygiene (sanitizer’s out!)
Shaved off my beard
It’s just what I feared
My face seems so weird (thanks to COVID-19!)
Back into the store
Panic’s rammed into the fore
Afraid of catching
The COVID-19

COVID-19 (one hospital down)
COVID-19 (it’s in the next town)
Build up supplies
People advise
For COVID-19
COVID-19 (all fresh food’s out)
COVID-19 (but brussels sprouts)
(two rolls, four rolls, short on toilet rolls…)
I’ll live on tinned food alone
No soap left in town but I’ll be safe through
This pandemic
Self-isolation all around
Time to consider later
(COVID-19, just a hoarder)
(COVID-19, national orders)
I say, too late, too late, too late to back out now…

Ten days in quarantine
Down to my last bean (but it fills you up!)
Don’t have a plan
Beyond the next empty can
Guess I must be a man
On his final 10p

The flu’s came and been
Since that last screen (though provisions thin)
Fear’s drifted off
Through my moderate cough
Imprisoned (by COVID-19)

Passed over, unforeseen
Hospitalized Aunt Eileen (come on Eileen!)
Trip to the store
Once again a bore…
