Liner Notes: 

Here's one I've just finished. Doesn't have a long term future (hopefully), so better get it out there now.
12 bar blues, obviously.

Lyrics: 

The Corona Lockdown Blues

V1
This is how it gets to you, the corona lockdown blues
(Yeh), this is how it gets to you, corona lockdown blues
I’ve worn my jammies for a month and I can’t find my shoes
V2
Today I cut my own hair, and then I trimmed my beard
Yeh, I just cut my own hair, then I trimmed my beard
Please don’t lift the lockdown yet, coz I look kinda weird
V3
Till they find a vaccine, I’m gonna treat this thing with wine
(Yeh), ‘till they get that vaccine, gonna beat the thing with wine
I hope I can kill this virus by suckin’ the fruit of the vine
V4
Before this lockdown started, I made witty repartee
(Yeh) Before this lockdown started, I made witty repartee
Now I have the social skills you’d associate with a tree
Outro:
This is how it gets to you, the corona lockdown blues
Yeh, this is how it gets to you, corona lockdown blues
I’ve worn my jammies for a month and I can’t find my shoes



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This is really funny. Love the humour throughout the lyric. Let me know if the wine thing works! Biggrin

I feel called out. Biggrin

Tho I must say I always look a bit weird. Of course, I need to go to a barber once!

Also, I'd say, I've started to wonder how willing I'm to risk human life for an evening with buddies. The results might surprise you!

Great write. Really inventive!

ha! fun stuff, i did a whole album of 'pandemic' songs and, sadly, i guess, its a subject that just keeps on giving and giving, or taking and taking!

stay safe and keep that sense of humor, we're all gonna need it!
nicely done

This is clever and delightful - a little fun bluesy song about something not so fun to live through. Well crafted!

I totally get you on the jammies. Smile Got a big kick out of this. Nice write. I hope someone jumps in with music (whether you hope for it or not. Wink )

An adroit and glib little lyric that speaks for all of us. I read it with a big smile and an empathetic nod.

Terrific SaltyJohn
I laughed so much the dog just came up to see if I was alright.
That's great, especially the haircutting.
Don't lose the cap, that's my suggestion, not until we're all through this.
