Stand six feet to the left Or six feet to the right Ya gotta go way over there Lock the doors, shut the lights I’ve got the social distance, the social distancing blues (Yes I do) You better do what you’re told Don’t go on a cruise Can’t give no one a hug Can’t hold my baby tight You got to wear a hazmat suit to get into a fight I’ve got the social distance, the social distancing blues (Yes I do) You better do what you’re told Don’t share your kazoos (SOLO) Wash your hands for 20 seconds Dont go out to any shows If you think you came in contact, you best not pick your nose I’ve got the social distance, the social distancing blues (Yes I do) You better do what you’re told Don’t listen to too much news Can’t get no toilet paper I can’t get no bidet I tried to order one online, but their sold out til May! I’ve got the social distance, the social distancing blues (Yes I do) You better do what you’re told Try to lay off that booze (I know it’s hard) I’ve got the social distance, the social distancing blues I’ve got the social distance, the social distancing blues I’m gonna social distance-sing this song And this will all blow over soon

I picked a bad time to quit drinking, what the hell was I thinking? I picked a bad time to quit drinking, when the world has been postponed.  I picked a bad time to quit drinking, miss the sound of bottles clinking,  I fear my ships already sinking,  so I might as well get stoned.  This ol' town has been shut down and the streets are paved with fear  I haven't seen a soul for days  2020's been a messed up year I picked a bad time to quit drinking, what the hell was I thinking? I picked a bad time to quit drinking, when the world has been postponed.  I picked a bad time to quit drinking, miss the sound of bottles clinking,  I fear my ships already sinking,  And I’m stick right here at home  I ain't got a show to play, and you just got laid off.  If only we could pay the bills with our free time and this cough I picked a bad time to quit drinking, what the hell was I thinking? I picked a bad time to quit drinking So I might as well get stoned  But it ain’t all so bad I should mention all the things I have And the darkness that has left and gone away Now when I wake up with no hangover, no regrets I’m ready, I’m ready for whatever comes my way I picked the right time to quit drinking Now I know what I was thinking I picked the right time to quit drinking  When the world has all gone mad I picked the right time to quit drinking  My waistline started shrinking  My attitude stopped stinking Being sober ain’t so bad!

No Time To Get Bored I know the world’s gone crazy, and you don’t know what to do But I am here to help, to help you make it through You might not even know what day or week it is But I am am used to that, because I work in show biz You might be bored Of keeping your hands clean Well here are some suggestions, Thanks to COVID-19 Oh, you can meditate or write some poetry You can eat a snack whenever you’re hungry You can talk to your plants Try on all your pants Write your will And then learn calligraphy You can practice yoga then go dye your hair You can go outside and breathe in some fresh air You can knit or crochet, Maybe you’ll learn today You can even organise your Tupperware CHORUS Because we’re quarantined And there ain’t much that we can still afford Oh yes we’re quarantined But we don’t have to be bored! You can read a book or sing a little song Take a nap, and then learn to play mah-jong You can paint, you can play What have you done today? If you’ve got roommates, I sure hope you get along You can call your ex and tell them that you’re stable Or memorise the periodic table You can learn Taekwondo, you can Marie Kondo You can watch Lifetime as long as you have cable CHORUS You can look at puppies on the internet Or do or aerobics til you break a sweat You can watch all of Star Wars Clean all of your drawers Learn the Hebrew alphabet Study language, learn from Duolingo You can organize a solo game of bingo You can blog, play guitar, baby, you will go far! You can decorate your yard with a flamingo CHORUS So don’t tell me that you’ve got nothing to do If you still don’t, the problem might be you So just get off of your ass Wipe your face Raise your glass I promise that we’re gonna make it through Make it through Make it through!

Who’s that now coming up to the door? delivering the goods Who’s that now coming up to the door? In every neighborhood Without the trucks, America stops thanks to the folks that bring us our stuff without your help lockdown would be hell thanks to the folks out there keeping us well Who’s that stuck in the grocery store? ringing up our bread Who’s that stuck in the grocery store? keeping us all fed Without the food everyone’s doomed thanks to the folks for staying in tune without your help lockdown would be hell thanks to the folks out there keeping us well You are Essential Essential You Are Essential We want to thank you Thank you We want to thank you Who’s that walking the hospital ward? out on the front lines Who’s that walking the hospital ward? risking their own lives Without the docslife it could stop nurses, technicians, responders and cops without your help lockdown would be hell thanks to the folks out there keeping us well You are Essential Essential You Are Essential We want to thank you Thank you We want to thank you Thank you for keeping us well

Three months since time stood still Three long months since time stood still I haven’t seen my family I haven’t seen my friends I haven’t seen a sign that tells me this will end I haven’t had your cooking I haven’t seen you smile I haven’t seen you Grandma, And I may not for a while When will I see my Grandma again? When will I see my Grandma again? Time has passed, and it’s gone with the wind When will I see my Grandma again? I think about being a child Living in your house, you’d sing to me at night Cook me breakfast every morning Tuck me in when I was scared All I really needed was knowing you were there I haven’t heard your stories I haven’t seen you smile I haven’t seen my Grandma And I may not for a while When will I see my Grandma again? When will I see my Grandma again? Time has passed, and it’s gone with the wind When will I see my Grandma again? All I wan’t for you to see my new home See what I’ve worked for and who I’ve become Sleep in my guest room thought you’re not a guest You are my Grandma, and you are the best When will I see my Grandma again? When will I see my Grandma again? Time has passed, and it’s gone with the wind I sure hope I’ll my Grandma again?

Go Big and stay home, call your friends on the telephone Go big and stay home, cause you know you’re not supposed to roam These are trying times, you gotta go big and stay home Do something you would never do Learn something you always wanted to You’re saving lives by staying in Don’t make them ask you where you’ve been Go Big and stay home, call your friends on the telephone Go big and stay home, cause you know you’re not supposed to roam These are trying times, you gotta go big and stay home Take the time that you have Use it well, don’t be mad Now's the time, don’t delay You’ll get to live another day Go Big and stay home, call your friends on the telephone Go big and stay home, cause you know you’re not supposed to roam These are trying times, you gotta go big and stay home Go Big (GO BIG) Stay home (STAY HOME), Go Big (GO BIG) Stay home (STAY HOME), Well these are trying times, you gotta go big and stay home Go big & stay home
