Covid 19

Postby Aussie » 24 Mar 2020, 18:07

I swiped this from Facebook. Not gonna tell you who wrote it, as my stalkers are still there. MCR.





If I had any musical talent I would have sung it, but I’ve gone with what I’ve got and just wrote it instead.

It Was COVID-19
(with apologies to Redgum)

Mum and dad and granny all passed out on the Ruby Princess Cruise
It was the wrong March for boomers
Me and my family were the next to tour and it was me who maxxed the card
We did Dreamworld and Wet’n’Wild before we left

And Brisbane cleared the footpaths as we marched down to the quay
This screenshot from my FaceBook shows us young and strong and clean
And there's me in me baseball cap with me iPhone and sunscreen
God help me
It was COVID-19

From Wuhan eating bats to biting the dust in old Milan
It feels I’ve been reading about shockers now for months
And we’ll be staying intense at home, drinking V.B. and doing chinups on lockout
And with faded hope of flattening the curve

And can you tell me, doctor, why I still can't get loo rolls?
And night time news is just a bungled lark and an updated infection poll?
And what's this cough that comes and goes, can you tell me what it means?
God help me
It was COVID-19

A four week isolation, when each breath can mean your last one on two legs
It was a war within yourself
But you wouldn't let your mates down 'til they had you flattened off
So you Netflixed and chilled and thought about somethin' else

And then someone yelled out ‘contact’, and the bloke behind me swore
We’d avoided shaking hands for ages, then they closed the state border
And Frankie lost his café job the day that the NRL shut down
God help me
He was goin' part-time in June

And I can still see Frankie, drinkin' tinnies out at Fridays
On a thirty-six hour bender, on the lash
And I can still hear Frankie, lying screaming at CentreLink
'Til the website came online and gave him bloody cash

And now Anzac day is cancelled for the first time in many years
And the stories that I read each day never seem quite real
I caught some pieces on Instragram that I didn't even feel
God help me
It was COVID-19

And can you tell me, doctor, why I still can't get loo rolls?
And why the Channel Seven online feed is full of bloody trolls?
And what's this cough that comes and goes
Can you tell me what it means?
God help me
It was COVID-19

Brilliant I'm going to do a version of it, we had to close our local music scene and now doing youtube video's of ourselves to pass the time. I'll do this one :)

I leave the screens open all day so often the wife will stop and see what I've been saying anyway,

but we both used to be on a migration forum before we married. I had to behave because she was the moderator :rofl :rofl

My Best Mate from way back to Grade One in Primary School has just been tested positive. He is 71 in April. Spends a lot of time overseas working (I'd have to kill you if I told you on what) and got back to Australia on March 14. I don't think he has any underlying health issues. His smart arse comment on the bright side was ~ 'Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about getting it now.'

:bgrin

(Lives in Canberra BTW.)

John, I hope you have a full recovery and that you are feeling better soon.

In the U.S. hospitals are cancelling all non-essential procedures so that they may save supplies and beds. If Corona spreads in Australia, you may be one of the last to get the type of surgery you got for a while. My brother got a hip replacement about 3 weeks ago, but he couldn't have had it now.

I'm pretty sure we've done that already :?

Or maybe it's just my state.
