I couldn't resist using the song Hey 19 by one of my favorite bands, Steely Dan, to create this parody about Covid 19.

Way back when
In 1918
There was a dandy
Of a flue
One third of people got infected
Now 2020
feels a lot like you

Covid Nineteen
Now we can't dance together
We can’t get close at all
Social distancing’s really got us down

Hey Nineteen
We’ve had enough now
Fondly remember the common cold
Don’t wanna be a soul survivor
I might be crazy, I plan on growing old

Covid Nineteen
We all have something in common
We can’t get close at all
Social distancing’s really got us down

spoken: Shit Don’t look good
mmmm It’s in another country now...

The Cuervo Gold
The fine Columbian
Make tonight bearable thing
say it again . . .

A Cabernet
A Pinot Grigio
Make tonight a bearable thing

A Chardonnay
A Saint Emilion
Make tonight a bearable thing

No we can't dance together
We can’t get close at all
