Downtown…

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…

She obviously was not thinking the song would be adapted and not work for those who live in flats and bungalows…
