The Lyrics

"I'm not a paranoid, deranged millionaire, Goddammit, I'm a billionaire." - H.R.H. - There's a new dance sensation that's sweeping the nation. It's called 'The Hughes Shuffle'. It seems, everyone is shuffling around in their slippers while self quaratining like Howard Hughes. Speaking of Howard, If he could run his empire from the isolation of his darkened hotel room, we can do likewise.

Howard Hughes
Was the famous germaphobe recluse
Who'd go 'anal' with bath tissues
Oh, who would live like Howard Hughes?

Watch 'Ice Station Zebra' this eve'ning*
Your megalomania shan't be seen
Think, Howard Hughes and Quarantine

There's no place to go
Watch a show - take off your shoes
Leave the T.V. on
All night long like Howard Hughes

Howard Hughes
Would have 'shat' himself hear-ing the news
The virus would make his diaper ooze
Oh, rest in peace now Howard Hughes

Where's our stimulus?
People fuss with virus blues
You can hear them bitch
I'm not rich like Howard Hughes

Howard Hughes
Had a lifestyle many would not choose
Until they're faced with to-day's issues
For, now we live like Howard Hughes

Hmm.. hmm... hmmm...

* His favorite film.

Very good, especially how you tied in his odd habits to the ones we have been compelled to do now.
