The Lyrics

(instrumental opening)

Well, I'm a-gonna raise a fuss, I'm a-gonna raise a holler.
'Cause I ain't workin', if I were, I still couldn't spend a dollar.
Every time I call my baby, with somethin' to ask
that girl says, "No dice, boy, we can't kiss through a mask."

Sometimes, I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
'cause there ain't no cure, so it's COVID time blues.

(instrumental break)

Well, my Mom and Pop, they told me, "Son, just keep a social distance.
Don't you come over by car, at our doctor's strong insistence."
Well, I can't go to work, heard the boss there is sick.
And the Governor of Florida is taking the mick.

Sometimes, I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
'cause there ain't no cure, so it's COVID time blues.

(instrumental break)

I'm gonna take two weeks, or might take until Thanksgiving.
But I'll be walking on Election Day, 'cause Donald, this ain't living.
Well, don't call no Congressmen, 'cause I say, quote:
"You screwed this up you bum, so for Biden, we vote!"

Sometimes, I wonder what I'm a-gonna do
'cause there ain't no cure, so it's COVID time blues.

(instrumental close)

Quick! Get Daltrey and Townsend on Zoom to cover this now.

Ditto on bringing Daltrey and Townshend for this version! I'm certain these guys might find time for it...

Biden is no longer mentally competent to handle a crisis of this magnitude, but still a good spoof.

I'm the dumbest slime douche.

McVey, Biden is more competent to handle anything than you are to comment on this.

Er.. *Biden* is the one not mentally competent to handle this??? Jeez.. have you listened to the guy who's supposed to be in charge at the moment? Ah.. I get it: you're doing what Don does: projecting his own failings onto those he doesn't like.

So many people gave this all ones. Do they not realize that these themed parodies are a way for us parodists to cope with the crisis? If you truly don't like it, don't rate or comment.
