about

A song written just before the great lockdown of 2020.

lyrics

Used to be I’d wake up,
With a coffee and a cigarette,
Sit myself down to write a song,
Work on my greatest hits,
But the internet she’s hungry,
And needs to be fed,
Take a picture of my breakfast,
And head on back to bed.

The dreams I had,
Have all but washed away,
So I’ll show you this picture,
An' you can tell me what you say,
Do I look good, on yesterday’s stage?
Check out my Instagram, and like my page,

I've got followers, why do I feel so alone?
I got friends, who don't call me on the phone,

If you like me like ya say ya do,
Not just on Facebook, but really true
If you like me like ya say ya do,
Then come over,
I’ve got the blues.

Used to be my Sundays,
Were my day of rest,
Now I edit selfies,
Post the ones I like the best,
I could’ve taken, the kids to the park,
It's gettin' on their bedtime,
yeah, it's getting dark.

But I got followers, why do I feel so alone?
I’ve got friends, I don't talk to anymore,

If you like me like ya say ya do,
Not just on Facebook, but really true
If you like me like ya say ya do,
Then come over,
And bring some booze.

I should’ve been, talkin’ with the wife,
Who needs love, when you’ve got likes

I got followers, why do I feel so alone?
I’ve got friends, I don’t even really know

If you like me like ya say ya do,
Not just on Facebook, but really true
If you like me like ya say ya do,
Then come over,
Why don't you come on over,
And help me move.
Yeah, help me move.
Yeah, help me move
Help me moooooooooooooooove
