The Lyrics

This was one of those rare ideas that felt like it wrote itself in one sitting - my muse must be burning hot at the moment!

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
Never knew the ills of bat stew
Never knew I'd fear the air
When they're coughing somewhere near me
I get an urge to run away in fear

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - don't you bring the blight
Covid - take your offspring
Quarantine out of sight!

Death toll's rising big time
Tumbleweeds rule the night
I tense up when I hear my name
Don't you know that is a source of fright

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - don't you bring the blight
Have you - been to Beijing?
Watch me run for my life!

Everybody's getting Covid
That damn virus' quite a hoe
Covid is cause for prudence
Covid doesn't know it blows

Ebola and Cigarettes
Public Debt and Aspartame
But when compared this Covid's badder
I think Covid puts them all to shame

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - does it ride with you?
Covid's - like a friar
Handsy it is coming through

Black Death makes your ass bubonic
AIDS compared's a gay affair
'Cos Covid it has now upstaged them
Don't mention SARS, oh don't you dare

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - don't you bring the blight
Covid - do you hear me
Covid - we must un-unite

There's no TP in my storage
Prepping I forgot to make
Marts might also carry Covid
It's all Trump's fault 'less the news is fake

Don't give me Covid - don't come near me!
Covid - it's my one concern
Covid - throat is itching
To quarantine I will adjourn

To quarantine I will adjourn
To quarantine I will adjourn
To quarantine I will adjourn

Great job! I really hope to finally see an end to this Covid-19 pandemic but I'm enjoying the parodies for now.

Wonderful parody! I'm certain Misses Lee and Fitzgerald would have enjoyed belting this one out. You should check out "This Is Life (With Covid-19)" for March 23 on this site...I wrote it last week after visiting a WalMart!

Wow! We're gonna need a face off between this one and that Yellow Submarine parody that some supremely talented unknown parodist posted today ;-D
