Sounds a bit like wake me up when September ends by green day...... Lol

Sounds good and a nice impersonation of Billy Joe's vocals, but I'm not sure if this is supposed to be funny or serious?

Green day have a way of making sad songs seem funny, but I can't catch all the lyrics here.

FDE,

It's meant to be interpreted however the listener wishes. :-)

If it's funny to ya, then it's funny. If it's serious to ya, then it's serious. Or maybe it's both. I'll leave that up to you to decide. :-)

I was just inspired to write some lyrics as a derivative to the Green Day song. I reached out to my friend Jody and he and some of his friends got on board and we turned the lyrics into a full fledged recording.

I decided to make a video to go with the song and there we have it. The video content I found on YouTube, spliced it up and edited it all together to add to the narrative.

It was fun and now I want to share it. :-)

Here are the lyrics for ya to see:

“Wake Me Up When Corona Ends"
(In the tune of WAKE ME UP WHEN SEPTEMBER ENDS: Green Day)
Derivative lyrics by Gregory Watton

Winter brought us a bug
The healthy ones can't fight with drugs
Wake me up when Corona ends

Wish the summer heat could kill
This bug that's made us ill
Wake me up when Corona ends

Here comes that bug again
Cousins known to SARS
Don't let me breathe it in
This world's turned bizarre

If there's pain in my chest
Then you will know what is coming next
Wake me up when Corona ends

Winter brought us a bug
The healthy ones can't fight with drugs
Wake me up when Corona ends

The warning signs are there
The world is silent again
Wake me up when Corona ends

Here comes that bug again
Cousins known to SARS
Don't let me breathe it in
This world's turned bizarre

If there's pain in my chest
Then you will know what is coming next
Wake me up when Corona ends

Winter brought us a bug
The healthy ones can't fight with drugs
Wake me up when Corona ends

Wish the summer heat could kill
This bug that's made us ill
Wake me up when Corona ends
Wake me up when Corona ends
Wake me up when Corona ends

Really really good Greg. So many people are taking a stab at addressing this via lyrics and songs, but most of them are not very good.

This one is exceptional....helps to have such a great tune to riff off of...but your lyrics make it work so well


If writing ever becomes work I think I'm going to have to stop

Precisely Greg. If everyone can contribute in a very small way, all together, we will achieve and overcome. smile

Hi Greg (and Jody by default):

Welcome home guys. Clever work in troubled times. So glad to see you posting and sharing again. John V. said it much more eloquently than I could even imagine. Thanks... and don't be strangers.
