Lyrics

V1
I got the Corona Virus Blues, can't stand to watch the news.
I'm so freaked out I don't know what to do.
Can't tell truth from the lies, I sure don't want to die.
But my immune system's feeling compromised.

Refrain 1
Binge-watched my favorite shows 'cause there's nowhere safe to go.
How long this will last, no one knows.
I'm hunkered down right here, still got plenty of beer.
And toilet paper to last me through the year.

V2
I keep my social distance at the doctors' insistence
Though it pains me to not be with my friends.
It's the price that we must pay to keep Corona at bay.
The virus..... not the beer.

Refrain 2
Binge-watched my favorite shows 'cause there's no place fun to go.
It's kinda boring at the grocery store.
So let's raise another glass 'cause I know this, too, shall pass
And I'll see you after all of this is through.

V3
I got the Corona Virus Blues, can't stand to watch the news.
I'm so freaked out I don't know what to do.
I tried some meditation and some self-medication
To cope with what might be impending doom.

Refrain 3
To work I cannot go and I'm runnin' out of dough.
How long this will last, no one knows.
I'm wishing I could turn back those stubborn hands of time.
To before I had the Corona Virus Blues. (tag x 2)
