The Lyrics

The illness is again growing,
and the numbers no longer fall.
At one time, here they were knowing
enough to heed the safety call.

Californians once were true
to what you’re supposed to do.
But now much caution is going,
and carelessness is casting a pall.

Californians weren’t as dumb;
as some in states in the sun.
But now there’s big crowds there.
Ain’t learned a thing?
Groups spawning new dawning
of cases skyrocketing.

Some dumbsh*ts out there tempting fate,
so the numbers escalate.
It is now like other states
in the “belt” named for the sun.

California once was one
state that wasn’t quite so dumb.
But now there are crowds there,
not distancing.
Dupes spawning new dawning
of cases skyrocketing.

Some dumbsh*ts out there tempting fate,
’cause they’re not willing to wait
until the virus abates.
Californians, some, are dumb.
