The Lyrics

Another of my coronavirus songs. Oxonian is because I live in Oxfordshire, England and Oxon is the abbreviation for Oxford.

This is the real world. This is not fantasy.
Caught in this nightmare, we must all face reality.
Be on your guard, it’s going to be hard for me.
Look to the future, and where you’re going to be,
Since there’s no easy fix, as it shows, there’ll be highs, there’ll be lows.
Please stay fit and healthy as it really matters to me, to me.

People, I’m warning you,
The pandemic’s far and wide, and there’s nowhere you can hide.
Listen very carefully
I’ll say this only once (Hello, hello!).
People, ooh, I’m saying this today
As I might not be here this time tomorrow;
Don’t feel bad, don’t feel sad, as I’m just one more statistic.

Looks like my time has come,
Got backache down my spine and I’m coughing all the time.
So now everybody, take my advice,
Stay indoors and don’t go spreading it around.
Oh dear, ooh,
If I’m going to die,
Please tell my friends on Facebook that I’ve gone.

(Guitar solo)

I’m now a shadow of a man I used to be,
What a shame, what a shame, where on earth is a vaccine?
I’ve now lost my bearing and it’s started scaring me.
It’s a bummer (it’s a bummer) it’s a bummer (it’s a bummer) it’s a bummer don’t you know
And don’t you know…
He’s just a goner, we’d better leave him.
He’s just a goner, better stay away from him,
Losing his life to this terrible disease.

Here I am, won’t be found, will you come around?
You’re joking, no! We’ll stick you in the ground.
Come around? You’re joking, no! We’ll stick you in the ground.
Come around? You’re joking, no! We’ll stick you in the ground.
Come around? We’ll stick you in the ground.
Come around? We’ll stick you in the ground.
Will you, will you, will you, will you come around Ah
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Oh please relieve me, don’t deceive me, do not leave me, come around,
The local church has a grave that’s set aside for me, for me, for me!

As I sit here and wonder how things went awry,
I had never believed I was going to die.
But maybe, something will save me maybe,
But I can’t get out, I’m not allowed out outta here.

Ooh, ooh yeah, ooh yeah,
No-one gives a monkeys, everyone can see,
No-one gives a monkeys
No-one gives a monkeys for me.
That’s the way the wind blows!
