Boris Does Karaoke

To the tune of Prince’s ‘1999’

I was pissed when I wrote this
Tier 3 restrictions gone astray
And when I woke up this morning
I knew it was your judgment day
Westminster sky all gloomy, people in intensive care
Trying to outrun virus droplets
Y’all had better make a prayer

I say: two thousand twenty Christmas lockdown’s coming, oops, out of time
But privately I party like it’s nineteen ninety-nine

Hungover when I wrote this, so sue me ‘cos I had a blast
Well, life is just a party and mask mandates aren’t meant to last
Vodka cocktails all around us, my mind is saying fuck ‘em all –
Let little people die alone as long as I can have a ball

I say: two thousand twenty Christmas lockdown’s coming, oops, out of time
But privately I party like it’s nineteen ninety-nine

Yeah, yeah, hey.

That’s right…
Paaaaaaaarty!

Sing it for your nation, y’all
Paaaaaaaarty!

Whatcha gonna do about it?
Paaaaaaaarty!
