Lyrics
NOT CLOSE TO YOU parody
Burt Bacharach, Hal David, (without permission from the other two) Sam Cooper AND Miss Tery Singer

Why do germs suddenly appear,
Fill our faces fill with fear?
Just like me,
They're scared to be,
Close to you.

Why do jerks look you in the eye,
Every time they walk by,
They get less than six,
Feet taking risks,
Close to you.

When Covid-19 was born,
It created quite a storm,
A Democratic hoax that wasn't true,
Now the particles spread in the air,
And on the surfaces all touched by you.

That is why all the crazy clowns,
Protest all that's shut down,
They can't stand to be,
At home like me,
They're close to you.

instrumental portion

When our President ignored,
The warnings because he was bored,
He went after enemies to screw.
In his rallies, golf and on the air,
He always says his words were misconstrued.

Is this your idea of how we win?
Population gets thin?
No guarantees,
Let's wait and see,
Who's close to you.
Heed our pleas,
Don't need to be,
Close to you.

Wa, close to you
Wa, close to you
Ha, close to you
La, close to you
