Don’t Lock Me Down!

19th January 2020

I do like E.L.O. or in full ‘The Electric Light Orchestra’. My first favourite was ‘Roll over Beethoven ‘, but ‘Don’t bring me down’ which the following should be sung to, is very good.

Very appropriate to lockdown conditions. I hope you enjoy it.


You got me spinnin’ goin’ out of my mind,

You got me thinkin’ that your wastin’ my time.

Don’t lock me down, no no no no no,

I’ll tell you once more before I get really sore

 

Don’t lock me down!

 

You wanna go out with your nearby friends.

I’m tellin’ you it’s gonna have to end,

Don’t lock me down, no no no no no no no no,

I’ll tell you once more before I get really sore

 

Don’t lock me down, Boris!

Don’t lock me down, Boris!

Don’t lock me down, Boris!

Don’t lock me down, Boris!

Don’t lock me down!

 

What happened to the mind I used to own?

You let your brain out somewhere down the road,

Don’t lock me down, no no no no no ,

I’ll tell you once more before I get really sore

Don’t lock me down!

 

You’re always talkin’ ’bout this crazy blight,

One of these days you’re gonna get it right.

Don’t lock me down, no no no no no ,

I’ll tell you once more before I get really sore

 

Don’t lock me down!

 

Don’t lock me down, Boris!

Don’t lock me down, Boris!

Don’t lock me down, Boris!

Don’t lock me down!

 

You’re lookin’ bad just like a snake in the grass,

One of these days I’m gonna kick your ass.

Don’t lock me down, no no no no no no no no,

I’ll tell you once more before I get really sore

Don’t lock me down!

 

You got me shakin’, got me hidin’ away

You got me watchin’ crap TV everyday

Don’t lock me down, no no no no no ,

I’ll tell you once more before I get really sore

Don’t lock me down!

 

I’ll tell you once more before I get really sore

Don’t lock me down!


With thanks or apologies to Jeff Lynn if he needs them.

P.S. Don’t forget you have, in reality, locked yourselves down by not checking the GUIDANCE, so it is not really all Boris’s fault.
