Six-Foot Blues
words: Steve Woodbury and Ann Bauer (March, 2020)
tune: Five-Foot-Two, Eyes of Blue

    Five-foot-two — no, that won’t do!
       Gotta stay six feet from you.
          That’s why I’ve got the six-foot blues!
    ‘Social Distance’ gets resistance
       But the CDC’s insistence
            Gives us all the six-foot blues!

Coronavirus does inspire us,
    Reading the news,
To obey what they say;
    As citizens we pay our dues.

    If we’re at sea, there must be
       One full fathom ’twixt you and me,
            That’s why we’ve got the six foot blues!
    Five-foot-two — that won’t do!
       Gotta stay six feet from you,
            Now we’ve all got the six-foot blues!

If I stay at home, all alone,
    I’ll be so blue;
If I go out and walk about,
   There’s a chance that I’ll see you.

    Miss my family and friends a lot,
       Wary neighbors is what I’ve got,
            Because they’ve got those six-foot blues!
    Five-foot-two — that won’t do!
       Gotta stay six feet from you
            Now we’ve all got the six-foot blues!

This new metric, antiseptic,
    Is our routine;
The separation for conversation:
    About two meters in between!

    I miss the music, I miss the fizz,
       Shutdown news is all there is,
            That’s why I’ve got those six-foot blues.
    Five-foot-two — that won’t do!
       Gotta stay six feet from you,
            Now we’ve all got the six-foot blues!
