The Lockdown Shuffle

Revision as of 17:06, 31 July 2020 by Richbrown (talk | contribs)

Intro (read/sung slowly)


Jackson's Moonwalk, had nothing on this Neither had the Charleston, And neither had the Twist And as for the Swim? I think you get the gist There's only one dance That you're ever going to miss


To be read/sung in a militant fashion


Chorus


People meet upon the street From left to right shuffle your feet Fear of contact makes you complete Socially distance your shuffling feet


Verse


On the pavement Or in the park In the day Or in the dark Avoiding each other As we're passing by Your lock down shuffle really caught my eye

Approach from the north And I'll approach from the south We nearly collide As the pavement runs out Whose got the virus Is it me or you? There's just one thing for us to do

Avoid each other like the plague Our social distancing Shouldn't be too vague Government guidelines Direct from Sage Mean the lock down shuffle has come of age


Chorus


People meet upon the street From left to right shuffle your feet Fear of contact makes you complete Socially distance your shuffling feet


Verse


Wearing a mask is all very fine And staying at home just chews up time A portion of exercise Is not the same As a socially distanced paranoid game

That tired blond bombshell in number 10 Will decide our freedom But who knows when Until that time And it can't be wrong Let's keep our distance And sing this song


Chorus


People meet upon the street From left to right shuffle your feet Fear of contact makes you complete Socially distance your shuffling feet


Verse

Now it seems that the virus Might come to an end But a second wave they say Is just around the bend And God forbid that you misbehave Cos although it may not seem so The situation is still grave

So they've closed the airports And stitched on your mask Don't question why Don't dare to ask Why it has to be this way Cos the lock down shuffle is here to stay

So Merry Christmas and a Happy New year To the next generation Shackled by fear And a few hundred billion That they'll have to pay back With the lock down shuffle To keep them on track


Chorus


People meet upon the street Lift your heels to the crazy beat Fear of contact makes you complete Socially distance your shuffling feet
