Subject: A Jab Song (to confound anti-vaxers)
From: McGrath of Harlow
Date: 20 Dec 20 - 11:29 AM

I had my first Covid vaccine jab on Friday. One more in three weeks, and I'm a free man in one month.

So here's a song I made today, to share my jubilation. It's been a long year.

The Jab Song - I've had the Jab

Life has felt a little drab
Living like a hermit crab.
Even going to the pub
Maybe meant lying on a slab.
But now help is on its way
I'm so happy I can say
For me the Covid's had its day,
I've had the Jab.

I've had the Jab,
I've had the Jab.
For me the Covid's had its day,
I've had the Jab.
Yes I had the Jab todayAnd I could dance a roundelay.
Things are going to be OK
- I,ve had the Jab.

So get the Jab,
Go get the Jab.
Don't hide yourself away,
Go get the Jab.
Time to get it in your head,
Don't wait until you're dead.
Just get on the phone instead,
And get the Jab.


I stuck a hastily made rendering on you tube. Very rough. If anyone feels like doing it better, be my guest. Here is my version, anyway.

And another verse:

Have the Jab
Have the Jab,
It's the greatest of sensations,
Have the Jab.
Can you hear my Jubilation,
It's my Day of Liberation,
Let me tell the whole damn nation,
Get the Jab.

Hey Mac - I've always wondered about you.

(direct quote)
" the first group to receive the vaccine, will be those in acute care, psychiatric and correctional facility hospitals.... "<

Thanks for the clarification.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

OK you can slther back down to your domain.

Or in the case of where I live, people over 80. Harlow has particularly bad Covid statistics, which may perhaps have got us some priority.

Don't fret, your turn won't be too long.

I'm just short of 62..

Knowing my luck, I'll be at least 70
by the time this inept govt gets round
to vaccinating the under 65s...???

Don't you believe it, punk. This government messes everything up alright, before making a u-turn, but getting in the way of the vaccine's rolling out would be like standing in the path of a steamroller.

Here is a song about Flu vaccines that matches the way I feel.

It's just flashed on me what tune I seem ti have had in mind when making that song -
- thanks maybe to overdosing on US politics the last couple of months.

We've got Frankin D Roosevelt Back Again My favourite election song ever.

It's good to encourage people to get vaccinated, but sad to say the shots won't mean you are 100% protected. You will still need to be careful. I'm not going to say how; I leave that to the experts.

From what they say there's something like 94% protection, and that'll be good enough for me, a lot better than I'd hoped for. Nothing in life is 100%.

I'll be sticking with the mask and the distancing and so forth, but in my mind I'll be doing it to protect other.

And now I've had my second jab, on Friday. Which puts me ahead of President Biden, who gets his tomorrow. And the Pope only gets his first later this week.

Though my idea, when I had my first jab, that come Friday, when with the necessary seven days after the jab are through, and it's my Liberation Day, I'd mark it by going down the pub, are stymied, since by now all the pubs are shut down.
