about

A social distancing-inspired ballad, recorded in Brooklyn during NYC's coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

lyrics

My mother told me to write something uplifting
To cheer us as we wait for news to improve
That’s not my forte but she keeps on insisting
So I am attempting to lighten the mood

Stay in the house
And pick up the phone
We’re here with each other
Though we are alone
Six feet apart
To keep everyone safe
But I hope that we’ll sing this
Together someday

My father told me he’d been doing some reading
About when all Europe had caught the Black Death
The Bubonic Plague old Yersinia Pestis
Oh all things considered we’re lucky I guess

They opened a tomb where a mummy was buried
Some thousands of years ago sealed with a curse
What did they expect had they seen no old movies
The Ancient Egyptians knew it could be worse

My brother says hey well at least it’s not raining
As torrents of water pour down from the sky
Cause all you can do now apart from complaining
Is try to crack jokes so you don’t start to cry

Has this been uplifting? I did the assignment
But it’s not so easy to ace this exam
The silvery lining, we’re trying to find it
You’ll show me I hope when we’re out of this jam
