Yesterday – A Spoof

mask

Yesterday
The Covid Virus seemed so far away
Now it looks as if it is here to stay
Oh, I believe in Yesterday

Suddenly
I’m locked inside instead of free
There’s a facemask hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why I had to hide, locked inside, I couldn’t say
I coughed, is something wrong?!??! Now I long for yesterday!

Yesterday
Meeting friends was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why I had to hide, locked inside, I couldn’t say
I coughed, Something’s wrong!!!! Now I long for yesterday!

Yesterday
Meeting friends was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
MM mm mm mm mm mm

This was written for Chelsea Owen’s Terrible Poetry Contest.  I typically just post in the comments on here site, but I though some of you may want a laugh :)  If you didn’t guess, the idea was to a parody of a classic song and make it about Covid-19.  I may try to play-sing this later ;)

I hope you enjoyed!

          If I do it, it will be a more full recording – I will lay down basic string and piano tracks, maybe bass, and then my singing (through the vocoder) on top. I will most likely just use a photo of me in the mask in the background and have the words in bold in the foreground. We’ll see…

      I’m not so sure yesterday believes in us either – I know looking at what we did to the world yesterday, and today,.. uhm.. Yep, better shape up. Thanks. A friend made the mask. She has been making them since early March.
