Lockdown Song

There are people learning latin, people cleaning cars

people doing jigsaws and working out with stars

the neighbour's cleaned his gutters till they're absolutely clear

and I sit on my big fat arse and sip another beer


there's jet washing of driveways and tinkering with tools

baking cakes with sprinkled flakes, malfunctioning home-schools

people dressed in lycra are giving me the fear

so I sit on my big fat arse and sip another beer


there's polishing and painting, queuing at the shop

sweaty palms and lack of calm as money-markets drop

there's staring at the skies if random planes appear -

and I sit on my big fat arse and sip another beer


there's flattening the curve, and fattening the face

there's wishing that your family were in some distant place

but I don't give a monkey's if we are locked down for a year -

I'll still sit on my big fat arse and sip another beer.
