The Lyrics

The COVID-19 pandemic from an Australian perspective.
A long, long time ago
I can still remember how them packed crowds used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could take that trip to France
And maybe id be happy for a while

But Feb 2020 made me shiver
On every paper Wuhan fever
Bad news on the doorstep
SARS outbreak back again

Then I thought we'd turned the tide
But After bushfires covid spread worldwide
Tickle in my throat deep inside
The day restrictions died

So bye, bye,to the virus free life
Drove myself right to the test site but the line was sky high
them anti vaxxers waving signs Left and right
Singin' jab mandate we will not comply
QR codes them government spies.

Do you know infection control?
Better wear a mask coz it's not a cold
Coz the WHO tells you so?
Now do you wash your hands all clean and fine
Everyday for 20 seconds at a time?
And can you teach me how to cough into my elbow?

Well, I know that the outlook is grim
'Cause we have to shut down pubs and gyms
Amazon to buy shoes
Cause Westfield I couldn't get to

I was a lonely adult working from home
With my desk and laptop sitting here all alone
But I knew that I was on my own
When omicron arrived.

I started singin bye, bye ,to the virus free life
Drove myself right to the test site but the line was sky high
And them anti vaxxers waiving signs Left and right
Singin' jab mandate we will not comply
QR codes them government spies.

Now for two years we've been on our own, with the borders closed and stayin at home
But that's not how it is to be
When the toilet paper is near empty
Delays in the supply chain delivery
And a voice saying limit of two from the checkout lady

Oh, and while this guy was looking down
This girl threw a few rolls to the ground
The fighting had returned
Security was concerned

And while kids at home attempt a passing mark
Our exercise hour is a walk in the park
And Power failures left us in the dark
Because the grid was fried

We were singin' bye, bye ,to the virus free life
Drove myself right to the test site but the line was sky high
them anti vaxxers waiving signs Left and right
Singin' jab mandate we will not comply
QR codes them government spies.

Helter skelter in a summer swelter, but avoid the beach, home is your safest shelter
thousand cases high and climbing fast
Better make sure you don't forget your mask,
the N95 is the only one thats a pass
With the furloughed workers on the sidelines can they last?
Now UberEATS meals were sweet perfume
While gal Gadot sang that imagine tune
Wishing nightclubs open to dance
but government won't give us the chance
No overseas workers to plough the fields
How will we ever get these crops to yield?
Do you recall what was revealed
On the news reports tonight?

We started singin' bye-bye,to the virus free life
Drove myself right to the test site but the line was sky high
them anti vaxxers were waiving signs Left and right
Singin' jab mandate we will not comply
QR codes them government spies.

Oh, and there we were all in one place, but the virus spread without masks on our face
With no time left to start again.

So come on, nurse be nimble, nurse be quick, overworked underpaid putting up with the sick
Cause Pfizer is now the governments best friend
Oh, and as I watched the prime minister' on stage
My hands were clenched in fists of rage
Why didn't China tell?
Could've stopped this covid hell
And as the flames climbed high into the night
Scott Morrison went off on a Hawaiian flight
I saw the Chinese trying to hide
The ones who'd already died

We started singin' bye-bye,to the virus free life
Drove myself right to the test site but the line was sky high
And them anti vaxxers were waiving signs Left and right
Singin' jab mandate we will not comply
QR codes them government spies.

My Tinder match in lockdown too, I asked her for some happy news
She sent a smile and ghosted me
I went down to the Bunnings store what I'd done for home projects years before
But the man there said you can only click and collect today
And in the streets, some children played
Furloughed workers on government pay
But no groups were gathering
The churches all live streaming
And the three men I keep seeing the most
health minister, state Premier, and CHO
Our vaccine rollout was super slow
And it will soon cost lives.

they were singin' bye-bye,to the virus free life
Drove myself right to the test site but the line was sky high
And them anti vaxxers were waiving signs Left and right
Singin' jab mandate we will not comply
QR codes them government spies.

They were singin' bye-bye,to the virus free life
Drove myself right to the test site but the line was sky high
And them anti vaxxers were waiving signs Left and right
Singin' jab mandate we will not comply
QR codes them government spies.
