The Lyrics

There will be a solar eclipse in just a few days. The corona is the atmosphere of the sun, which does indeed give off light, but is much less powerful than the solar surface. As a result, the corona is seen only during a solar eclipse. On the other hand, if you want to think of the Mexican beer of the same name, that's OK, too.
When the moon hides the sun like a hamburger bun
It's an eclipse
The corona will shine, sun and moon are in line
It's an eclipse
Cocks will crow, cock-a-doodle-doo, cock-a-doodle-doo
'Cause they think it's the morning
Hearts will rend, thinking it's the end, thinking it's the end
Like an ominous warning

When the dogs start to bark 'cause the day's turning dark
It's an eclipse
When you can't see the street or the path at your feet
You should know
When it feels like the night, but you know it's still daytime, your mind flips
Don't worry, what you see happens naturally
It's an eclipse

When the full moon turns red and it fills you with dread
Lunar eclipse
When the moon cannot shine but it looks red like wine
Lunar eclipse
You will see it's not made of cheese, it's not made of cheese
When the cow's jumping over
You might ask, is it coming back, is it coming back
As you're sniffing the clover, back to solar

When the stars make you swoon 'cause you see them at noon
It's an eclipse
When your shadow's not here but there's nothing to fear
You should know
When it feels like the night, but you know it's still daytime, your mind flips
Don't worry, what you see happens naturally
It's an eclipse

An eclipse
It's an eclipse

Very good Steve! Although as I tell my wife, if I want to see an eclipse, I can just stick my hand up between my eyes and the sun...yeah, she thinks that's stupid too...anyway, I attempted this one once but found the rhyme scheme too difficult so I simplified it. Kudos for navigating it well; it's tricky.

I toast your parody with a Corona in each hand! It should win the diamond-ring award next Tuesday.

My local PBS channel will broadcast from the path of totality starting at 2:30 PM EDT for stay-at-homes.

I humbly submit this suggestion:

You will see it's not made of cheese, it's not made of cheese
Like a huge gorgonzola
You might ask is it coming back, is it coming back
As you're cringing in dolor, back to solar

"Worry" has the accent on the wrong syllable, but I can't think of a rewrite.
Very fine parody, indeed!

that's a good well-written parody. Don't forget the non-parody song "Eclipse" by Pink Floyd on Monday.

It'll be a near-total solar eclipse for most of us, but it's still worth the time and effort to see. I'll have something else to drink, however - Corona beer tastes like slop to me, but them pretty rich California girls sure seem to like it!
