If Petula Clark had sung during the coronavrus…
When you’re alone and life is making you lonely,
You can always go downstairs.
When your fridge is a teaser, all the food in the freezer
Seems to help, I know, downstairs
Just listen to the WhatsApp of the friends in other cities
Linger on the iMac where the zoom call chats are witty
When can you booze?
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares,
So go downstairs
Things will be great when you’re downstairs
No finer sofa for sure, downstairs…
