The Lyrics

There's a thin line between good taste roaming free and bad taste being quarantined - not that I ever cared before, so why start now!

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
Oh Lord, why'd you send us this Covid Nineteen?
This shortage of TP's the worst that there's been
I'm browning my thumbs now, itself a malaise
Done alt-right and alt-left on alt-ernate days

Oh Lord, won't you send us a cure or vaccine?
Starving blue collars can't live quarantined
I drool over tide pods, might try exorcism
But Lord, I'm too salty for cannibalism

Oh Lord, we're okey you hit villains and scum!
The critters in Congress and Biden and Trump
And when the four horsemen are making their rounds
Take pushers and slumlords residing downtown


But Lord, we're dead tired of Covid Nineteen
Don't take all the boomers, don't short caffeine
From airplanes' begriming the sky has been cleansed
Say Lord, did you do this for Greta and friends?
