The Lyrics

"The problem is all outside your house", she said to me
"The answer is easy if you take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle to be free
But you must find some ways to social distance"
She said, "You really don’t have to get all unglued
Furthermore, I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued
But if you don’t want your life to soon conclude
You better find some ways to social distance
Find some ways to social distance.”

Just go out and run, son
Leave lots of space, Chase
Don’t go out to eat, Pete
Just listen to me
Don’t hop on the bus, Gus
You don’t have to do too much
Just avoid all you see, Lee
And you’ll be germ-free

Ooh, turn the ol’ head, Fred
Make a new plan, Stan
Just walk a new way, Jay
And listen to me
Don’t hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to do too much
Just avoid all you see, Lee
And you’ll be germ-free

She said, "It grieves me so to make you quarantine
I wish there was something I could do to cure Covid-19"
I said, "I appreciate that, but how long has it been,
I mean, how many days?”
She said, "Why don't we both just sleep apart tonight?
And if you make it to the morning, you'll begin to see the light"
And then we shook feet, and I realized she probably was right
There must be fifty ways to social distance
Fifty ways to social distance

Just go out and run, son
Leave lots of space, Chase
Don’t go out to eat, Pete
Just listen to me
Don’t hop on the bus, Gus
You don’t have to do too much
Just avoid all you see, Lee
And you’ll be germ-free

Ooh, turn the ol’ head, Fred
Make a new plan, Stan
Just walk a new way, Jay
And listen to me
Don’t hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to do too much
Just avoid all you see, Lee
And you’ll be germ-free
