Covid Help!

22nd October 2020

Who doesn’t like the Beatles? At least some of their songs anyway. Here is my homage to John, Paul, George and Ringo. Something I hope will cheer those of you stuck in Tier 3 (or any other Tier).

I hope you might shed a few tears of laughter, or least have a giggle instead of watching the goggle-box.

Enjoy!

To the tune of Help! (as if you couldn’t guess).


Help! I need anti-body

Help! Not just anti-body

Help! You know I need some sun

Help!


(Before) Before lockdown (Before lockdown) the lockdown in April/May

(I never fear) I never feared influenza, ‘flu in any way

(Now) But now Covid has come (Covid has come) I’m not so self-assured

(And now I find) Now I find I’ve changed my mind, I’ve locked myself indoors

 

Help me if you can, I’m in lockdown

And I do appreciate you coming ’round

Help me with the guidance, it’s unsound

Won’t you please, please help me?

 

(Now) And now my life has changed (My life has changed) they say I’m in Tier 3

(My television) My television seems stuck on the BBC

(But) But ev’ry now (Every now and then) somehow it flicks to Channel 4

(I know that I) I know that I, just need some light, can’t stand it anymore

 

Help me if you can, I’m in lockdown

And I do appreciate you coming ’round

Help me with the guidance, it’s unsound

Won’t you please, please help me?

Help me, help me

Ooh

 

With apologies, if they need them, or thanks if they prefer, to assorted Beatles
