Well, there we go. A second lockdown. Always fun.
I accidentally rewrote most of the lyrics to “Hard-Knock Life” from Annie The Musical this morning, because I started singing ‘it’s the lockdown life for us’ whilst messaging TTR, and then before I knew where I was…I’d come up with a few more lyrics:
It's the lockdown life for us! It's the lockdown life for us! Go out sneaky, You’ll get nicked! No more meetings Under rule of six! It's the lockdown life! Got no masks to speak of, so, It's the lockdown row we hoe! Social distance ‘Stead of hugs! The government just Think we’re mugs! It's the lockdown life! Don't it feel like the wind is always howl'n? Don't it seem like there's never any light! Once a day, don't you wanna throw the towel in? It's easier than puttin' up a fight. No one's there when your chest gets kind of achy! No one cares if you sneeze or if you cough Nothing soothes when your fever hits 100 Or when the mortal coil you start to shuffle off! Ohhhh!!!!!!! Starve the children life! End the furlough life! Eat out/help out life! Now it’s your fault life! Boris J we never see Boris J, what's that? Who's he? No one cares for you at all When you're in a COVID hole! Charge him for his council tax! Give a lying man the sack! Listen to the scientists! Will you stop taking the p*ss...! It's the lockdown life for us It's the lockdown life for us No one cares for you at all When you're in a COVID hole! It's the lockdown life It's the lockdown life It's the lockdown life!
I honestly crack myself up sometimes. If anyone is clever enough to put this to music, I would love to see it.
