The Lyrics

A commentary on the 2020 coronavirus epidemic and its initial impact on households' and individuals' purchasing habits.
Don’t go chasing sanitiser
You never bothered to before,
Just keep buying shares in Pfizer -
I know their value’s going to soar.

I wouldn’t leave you isolated,
I will defend your heart and soul,
We’ve been together since we dated;
Please take my final toilet roll.

Don’t go making rash decisions
Based on what you read online,
Just hold firm to cheerful visions
Hoping things will turn out fine.

I don’t want coughs or constipation
Nor find it hard to catch my breath.
I just need someone to hear and talk to
Before I’m face-to-face with death.

I need to know that you will always shun
A life of alcohol and dope,
I hope that we can find a heap of fun
While never running short of soap.

[instrumental break]

Now let’s reduce our need to travel
And let’s support our local stores,
As we watch this world unravel
And concentrate on daily chores.
Pfizer Incorporated is an American multinational pharmaceutical corporation headquartered in New York City, USA. It is one of many developing and producing cures for different conditions and diseases.
