Pandemic Upsides

Written August 2020

Tab Db (C, capo 1)

I’ve got more time to work on French, pandemic upside,
my hands are clean, ’cause I just washed them again, pandemic upside,
+++and it’s UNPRECEDENTED, such crazy times,
+++but I HOPE we’re gonna be alright…

my yoga class is now on Zoom, pandemic upside,
don’t even have to leave my room, I’ve got namaste online,
+++yeah, it’s UNPRECEDENTED, folks are losing their minds,
+++still I HOPE it’s gonna be alright…
++++++would it be too much to ask?
++++++could you please just wear a MASK?
++++++we could sit out in the yard, 6 feet APART, and chat..

I’m lucky, I can work from HOME, pandemic upside,  (job site?)
take off my shoes and no one knows, my feet feel just fine,
+++it’s so UNPRECEDENTED, I lose track of time,
+++but I HOPE it’s gonna be alright…
++++++would it be too much to ask?
++++++could you please put on your MASK?
++++++try to sneeze into your sleeve,
++++++then we’ll all wash our hands again..

In trying times, I’m glad for friends, pandemic allies ,
vous me faites vraiment du bien, that’s French for “thanks, guys”,
+++it’s UNPRECEDENTED, but it’s good to be alive,
+++and I HOPE we’re gonna be,
+++yes, I think it’s gonna be,
+++together we can be alright…
