Liner Notes: 

Well, I posted the lyrics here a while ago, now I've decided this silly number needed to be sung, so here it is. Me and my Strat.

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

Nice bluesy lockdown song. Like the laid back approach to dealing with the virus. I'm sure we'll all emerge as different people. Maybe appreciating the smaller things.

This is great fun! I love the bluesy feel with that wonderful guitar line. The sincere dead pan delivery with the lyrics is perfect. The last lines are especially fun and clever. The fact that it is so close to the truth for many of us makes the bluesy humor timely and biting. Great job!
