It’s My Party And I’m Self-Isolating

Some friends have birthdays around this time of year, and the end of the world is really eating into their party plans.¬† Here’s a song to the tune of It’s My Party And I’ll Cry If I Want To in sympathy for their plight.

March 2020

Nobody knows when this crisis will end
But time ticks on just the same
My birthday party’s today
And not a single friend came

It’s my party and I’m self-isolating
Self-isolating, self-isolating
You’ll be sad too when it happens to you

Can’t get my hair done — my hairdresser’s shut
The butcher has no more stock
Thank god the bottle shop’s here
Essential services rock!

It’s my party and I’m self-isolating
Self-isolating, self-isolating
You’ll be sad too when it happens to you

Nobody’s coming to walk through the door
But I’ll survive, wait and see
One consolation surprise:
All this cake is for me!

It’s my party and I’m self-isolating
Self-isolating, self-isolating
You’ll be sad too when it happens to you
