The Lyrics


What you Caught
You know I don't want
Way you feel
I know that you got it
All I'm askin'
Is for you to keep distant when I get home (keep away from me)
Wear that mask (keep away from me) when I am at home
(keep away from me) spreader (keep away from me)
I don't wanna spread while I'm gone
Ain't gonna drop my mask 'cause I don't wanna
All I'm askin'
Is for you to keep distant when I get home (keep away from me)
Baby (keep away from me) when I get home (keep away from me)
Yeah (keep away from me)
I'm about to quarantine, honey
Ant all I'm askin' in return, sonny
Is to keep your mask on
When I get home (keep, keep, keep, keep)
Yeah, baby (keep, keep, keep, keep)
When I get home (keep your mask on)
Yeah (keep your mask on)
Ooh, your hisses
Costin' us money
And so what?
Pray the end not coming
All I want you to do for me
Is keep away from me when I get home (dis, dis, dis)
Yeah baby (dis, dis, dis)
Back up from me( distant, keep away from me)
When I get home, now (keep away from me)


Can't you keep away from me


Take care, C19
Oh (stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away)
Keep your distance (stay away, stay away, stay away, stay away)
Whoa, babe (keep away from me)
Keep your distance (keep away from me)
I get scared (keep away from me)
Keep from cryin' (keep away from me)
You're runnin' out of time (keep away from me)
And I ain't lyin' (keep away from me)
(Dis, dis, dis, dis) when I come home
(Dis, dis, dis, dis) 'tant
Or I might walk in ( distant, keep away from me)
And find out you're gone (keep away from me)
