Second wave?! A song from Cor Onan

Corona: Looks like war!

                                                

A remarkable YouTube video by folk singer ‘Cor Onan’ about the corona crisis with the telling title: Looks like war! Just now that some measures have been relaxed, the virus is returning in full force. A new lockdown? Or will there be a vaccine and it will all be history soon?

 

Corona
Cor with gas mask standing in front of Appie Heijn!
 

But a sudden return to the previous state of extremely avoidant behavior cannot be ruled out. Then the horrible corona just pops up again with all the dire consequences for people and the economy. A melodic refresher of the first order. Not to mention the accompanying film images. Isn’t that King Alexander behind a tree at the very beginning? And then that trip through the supermarket with a gas mask on? Not to mention the dinghy in Onan’s living room. The kind of indoor tourism closely related to corona.

Too hilarious for words. Listen and watch and of course forward it to family, friends and acquaintances, so that this creative effort reaches a larger audience. What Cor deserves like no other. Because he not only sings, but also plays a keyboard in a magnificent way (bought for a bargain price in the thrift shop).

For the sake of clarity, the lyrics of the song are below. That leaves nothing to guess about:

 

HOW LONG WILL THIS TAKE YET?
IT’S ENOUGH ANYWAY!
CAN’T GO TO MY FAVORITE PUB ANYMORE
SOON IT WILL GO BANKRUPT!
NOT A FIST FOR MY BEST FRIEND
BUT ONLY AN ELBOW!
HAVING A SHORT RIDE WITH MY CAT
A PERSON HAS TO DO SMETHING…

IT LOOKS LIKE WAR!
IT LOOKS LIKE WAR!

FROM THIS MOMENT ON WE WIL STOP SHAKING HANDS!
IT LOOKS LIKE WAR!
FROM THIS MOMENT ON WE WIL STOP SHAKING HANDS!

CAN’T GO TO MY GRANDMOTHER ANYMORE
BUT THAT’S NOT A DISASTER!
SHE HAS A STOMA WITH A LEAK!
SHE ALSO SMOKES SHAG ON THE SLY!
GAS MASK ON AT APPIE HEIN…
WHO HAS EVER THOUGHT OF THAT?!
AT HOME WITH A BOTTLE OF GIN…
THAT WAY MY SUFFERING IS EASED!

IT LOOKS LIKE WAR!
IT LOOKS LIKE WAR!

READING MYSELF DROWSY
IN THE WRONG BOOKS!
AM I GOING GRAZY NOW?
OR IT JUST SEEMS LIKE THAAAAT?
ONLY THEN WILL WE IN A RESPONSIBLE WAY HAVE
MORE ROOM TO MOVE IN THE ONE AND A HALF METER SOCIETY!!!

IT LOOKS LIKE WAR!
IT LOOKS LIKE WAR!

CAN’T GO TO MY GRANDMOTHER ANYMORE
BUT THAT’S NOT A DISASTER!
SHE HAS A STOMA WITH A LEAK!!
SHE ALSO SMOKES SHAG ON THE SLY!
GAS MASK ON AT APPIE HEIN…
WHO HAS THOUGHT OF THAT?!
AT HOME WITH A BOTTLE OF GIN…
THAT WAY MY SUFFERING IS EASED!

IT LOOKS LIKE WAR!
IT LOOKS LIKE WAR!

READING MYSELF DROWSY
IN THE WRONG BOOKS!
AM I GOING GRAZY NOW?
OR IT JUST SEEMS LIKE THAT?
ONLY THEN WILL WE IN A RESPONSIBLE WAY HAVE
MORE ROOM TO MOVE IN THE ONE AND A HALF METER SOCIETY!
