about

"Stayin' at Home" is a tongue-in-cheek post-punk, new wave track about the day to day life of those of us sheltering in place through the COVID-19 pandemic. The days are blending together as the weeks turn into months, but this is how we keep each other safe. Human lives are worth it.

If you're one of the many brave essential workers who keep physically going to work, you are an amazing human being who deserves hazard pay, free health care, protective equipment, paid sick leave, massive respect, and far more. Thank you for all you're doing to keep society going.

lyrics

Got up this mornin’
Got outta bed
Went to the kitchen
Ate some breakfast

Kept on my P.J.’s
Cuz’ I’m workin’ from home
From the computer
Getting everything done

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
I am and we all are
Stayin’ at home

Time passes quickly
Already noon
Best part of my day
When I get to eat food

Go to the kitchen
Make myself a bite
Lookin’ out the window
No one’s in sight

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
I am and we all are
Stayin’ at home

Wrap up my work day
Head to the couch
So now I’m a hero
For not goin’ out

Readin’ the headlines
Avoidin’ the stores
Doin’ all that I can
By stayin’ indoors
