Song parody: My Corona

Post by DPRoberts » Thu Jul 30, 2020 8:08 pm

Started this a couple months ago. Tonight I felt "inspired" to finish it
DPRoberts wrote:Oh you microscopic one, deadly one
When you gonna threaten my life, Corona
When I go to buy my food, wear a mask,
Six feet from the next one in line, Corona
Working via Webex now, newcasters cast from home
Happy now to worship at the church of the big blue dome
Sky, sky, sky, sky, high woa
M-m-m-my Corona

Glenn Beck on the radio, Mormon guy
Says it’s patriotic to die, Corona
Seems we’re all such patriots, lead the world
Led by an incompetent guy, Corona
Wanna save the elderly and vuln-rable that you adore
Echo chamber says you outta love making money more
Lie, lie, why, why, wha whoa

Sell your false dichotomy, economy
We’re too dumb to see that there’s one solution
Not concerned for simple folk, let ‘em choke
But don’t wanna face voter retribution
Open up too early now the plague gets to carry on
Maybe can distract by sending Fed troops to Oregon
Sly, sly, guy, guy, why, whoa
L-l-l-l-lie, Corona
Hi hi hi hi, Corona
Not bye bye bye, Corona
You’re coming nigh, Corona

The rhyming scheme and meter are pretty easy to work with. I invite you to take your own go at this. Any takers?

That's good. Thanks for sharing it with us.
There are 2 Gods. One who created us. The other you created. The God you made up is just like you-thrives on flattery-makes you live in fear.

Believe in the God who created us. And the God you created should be abolished.
