I’m sat in the garden having a drink.
Having lots of time to have a good think.
For this is a crazy world we’re in right now.
The sun is shining and the birds are singing,
I look over, and see that my dog is digging.
The wind blowing through my hair as I write,
I’m telling myself that things are gonna be all right.
There’s a pandemic spreading worldwide
It’s changing many people’s lives.
How long this will last, it’s hard to say.
Maybe until the end of May
For this horrible disease that has come upon us
Well, you can do one Corona Virus!
The NHS and front-liners are working non-stop.
Every Thursday, we clap at 8 o’clock.
We can’t thank you enough for all that you do.
Sending you all love and hugs, we’re here for you.
We’re staying at home to keep our loved ones safe
We thank you; you are all so brave.
When this is over, we can have a big rave
It’s not gonna be forever
Soon we will be together
Until then, my family and friends,
I’m thinking of you all until this ends.
