The Lyrics

This brisk sea shanty just provides an excellent basis for a parody for the COVID-19 lockdown
There once was a virus that went to spree
the name of the germ was COVID-19
First it went from bat to man
and it started in Wuhan

Soon may the Vaccine Man come
and inocculation will be done!
One day epidemic is gone
We can drop our masks and go!

First they said it was but a flu
and the germ did spread all through and through
Soon a full pandemic spread
and folks began drop dead

Soon may the Vaccine Man come
and inocculation will be done!
One day epidemic is gone
We can drop our masks and go!

The world’s locked up, I work at home
no more to Spain this winter I'll roam.
Off-limits also are Greece and Rome -
'Cause we can't anywhere go!

Soon may the Vaccine Man come
and inocculation will be done!
One day epidemic is gone
We can drop our masks and go!

It's 40 weeks or even more
Since I've met my parents or been to shore
The frustration's now at Level Four
Oh gosh, what a whale of bore!

Soon may the Vaccine Man come
and inocculation will be done!
One day epidemic is gone
We can drop our masks and go!

They promise us immunization
but vaccines are short in this nation
I hope they'll set up a needling station
it sure is one frustration!

Soon may the Vaccine Man come
and inocculation will be done!
One day epidemic is gone
We can drop our masks and go!

As far as I know, the fight’s still on
We still need masks, the bug’s not gone
The Vaccine Man has not yet done
his task on squirting the Bug-B-Gone!

Soon may the Vaccine Man come
and inocculation will be done!
One day epidemic is gone
We can drop our masks and go!

"We can drop our masks and go!"

No you can't, dearie! We OWN you now! Soon this overhyped common cold virus will "mutate" again, and we'll have you chumps wearing diapers on your faces FOREVER!

COVID-19 has already killed more Americans than WWII. No common cold has managed to do it since 1918. But stupidity obliges.

How is the pandemic affecting Finland. Masks have become such an industry here that I'm afraid it will never end. Is there resistance to vaccines where you live? A lot of political conservatives feel that vaccines will carry tracking information or alter one's genes. There are a lot of stories about children who, over the years, have suffered from autism and other serious health conditions due to vaccinations. My sister is a nurse and she won't take the vaccine.

Let's say we all wait for the vaccine. People in general have been surprisingly calm and disciplined, and everyone understands the situation. As it is winter now, even getting an ordinary flu sucks, not speaking about the coronavirus. My parents are among the first to be inocculated, and my sis-in-law (who is a nurse) has gotten it already. Wearing the mask sucks, but it also gives a sense of anonymity, and as it is winter and cold now, it has the unexpected effect of warming the breathing air. My mother is a polio survivor, and she made sure we all kids got our shots in good order. She is a living testimony of the fact that not so many years ago people really used to get killed and maimed from diseases which can today be fully prevented.

@ Patrick: You may be fooled by the government, I'm not sure, but if so I am sure that it's not in the way you seem to think. Look at the young protesters in Hong Kong, look at Antifa, look at Anonymous for God's sake - they're all using masks to protect themselves from surveillance cameras. Only the right side of the US seems to have arrived at (or been fooled to reach) the conclusion that masks in public are against their own normally die hard concealed carry interests in this age of ubiquitous surveillance. How in all overfrozen hells did that happen?

@ Susanna: Maybe a take on "Son of a preacher/vaccine man" next time?
