SARS-CoV-2 Is Coming To Town

There was a little controversy about this one. Some readers claimed never to have heard the term “SARS-CoV-2” in reference to everyone’s favourite civilisation-ending supervirus.  Others had heard it pronounced with four syllables: /SARZ-KOE-vee-TU/.  I have the example of Tegan Taylor and His Holiness Saint Norman that /SARZ-KOV-TU/ is at least a valid pronunciation though, so here goes.

The tune is Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, and I hope this will be the last of the virus-themed filks for 2020…

December 2020

You better not cough
You better not fart
You better just stand
Two metres apart
SARS-CoV-2 is coming to town

We’re keeping a list
And taking your name
The papers will need
Somebody to blame
SARS-CoV-2 is coming to town

It gets you when you’re flying
At work and in your school
Your secret bondage orgy too,
So be careful not to drool!

You better not dance,
You better not kiss
Put on a clean mask
Go home and get pissed
SARS-CoV-2 is coming to town
SARS-CoV-2 is coming to town!
