Mishpacha Magazine's Corona Song Parodies
« on: June 20, 2020, 11:10:44 PM »
Mishpacha had a contest who can come up with a good coronavirus-related parody to popular Jewish songs. Many of the results were great, IMO, and there is definitely a lot of food for thought there, hence I started a new thread for it. You can read the lyrics here and you can here singers sing some of them here.

One specific song stuck a cord, as it reminded me of so much back and forth that took place here on DDF (and elsewhere), with those pushing for strict adherence to restrictions and those pushing back against the need for it. Don't remember everyone who was involved, but it definitely involved @S209 @Lurker.

My dear brother
Look around and tell me
what your eyes behold
To avoid COVID-19
We are stuck in quarantine
We must obey everything that we are told
We must obey everything that we are told

But dear brother
You will surely find when all is set and done
That they soon will find the cure
And Purell doesn’t keep you pure
So why not calm down and have a little fun
Yes please calm down and have a little fun

My dear brother
I am sorry but you’re acting like a clown
What you’re saying is outrageous
Corona’s deadly and contagious
The Vaad may have to throw you out of town
Oh, the Vaad may have to throw you out of town

But dear brother
Please don’t believe that everything they say is true
Don’t be so glum and grouchy
Just ignore old Dr. Fauci
Corona is not much worse than the flu
Oh, corona is not much worse than the flu

My dear brother
Where have you gone, is this the moment I have known?
The door’s slightly ajar
In the driveway there’s no car
It’s all over, I must now quarantine alone
It’s all over, I must now quarantine alone

But dear brother
I apologize but this time you are wrong
You see I know you tried your best
But I took the antibody test
It turns out that we had it all along
Oh, it turns out that we had it all along
