Dear Quarantine - Lockdown lyrics for Dear Jealousy


Recommended Posts

As you might have heard on the MFC live and/or read in the current MFC IG stories, Instagram user erikjcjansen suggested to write new lyrics for Dear Jealousy, and we can do this as a team! :biggrin2: Here's what Erik suggested so far:

 

Dear Quarantine,

Why this house feels prisoning,

These walls don't do good for me,

it's time for me to leave.

 

Dear Quarantine,

midnight snacks is all I see,

why I want you near?!

 

Any suggestions? :wink2:

OK, here's my version of your lyrics all strung together to fit Mika's music. These lyrics are slightly different than those I posted earlier on Instagram because, of course, I left someone out -- so

Dear Quarantine

Why you make life hard to me

House is place I cannot leave

You're so cruel to me.

 

Dear Quarantine

You're my only company

Walls in room bacame boring

Please stop this agony.

 

Oh baby it's crazy, It's crazy to live like that

Crazy if you wanna go outside and

Remembering to take a mask

It's crazy, it's crazy for everyone

Having crazy times during the lockdown

It seems that it will never stop.

 

I keep thinking about next lines. It really can't get out of my head :lmfao:

I gave it a go 🙈

 

Oh honey I’m snacking, I’m gaining, I’m

packing those pounds

Those quarantine fifteen they say

Are real

Got a quarantine belly to bounce

I’m sitting and lying all on the same couch

Snacking from dawn to dusk to dawn 

Crawling up these walls I wish were gone 

 

Wish I could go out, but I’m stuck inside

Wearing the same clothes, ‘cause there’s no social life 

“Walk in the park” is a contradicting lie

I’m stuck here (dear quarantine)

Wearing a mask and stay away six feet

This coronavirus is in the air we breathe 

This new normal is not normal to me

I’m stuck here 

 

But one day it will get better, better

We’ll go out again, we’ll just be fatter

It won’t be forever 

we just got to keep it together as MFC

Keep that head high, chin up 

There is one thing that this virus won’t stop

A spirit and the music that guides you and guides me

‘till we live again free

My take on this. I've tried to make it rhyme and fit the rhythm of Dear Jealousy, I tried... 😅

 

Dear quarantine

My  room knows every part of me

These 4 walls staring back at me

I just want to leave

 

I'm in quarantine

A virus named covid-19

It made me sick for two weeks

I'm tired than I've ever been

 

Oh baby I'm tired, I'm tired

I'm tired of this.

I'm tired of all the bad news

When will it ever stop?

 

I'm hopeful, I'm hopeful

I'm hoping for a better time.

An army of key workers,

Doctors and nurses are on the front line.

 

No longer in quarantine

I'm waiting for a vaccine

It's coming soon, it won't be rushed

When it's here I'll give you all a hug.

I think I should give it a try :aah:

 

Dear quarantine

this year isn't good for me

strange things happened endlessly

I wish it would stop

 

Oh baby, I'm freakin, freakin', freakin' out

I'm freakin' out cos of the idiots who are still in doubt

I'm freakin' out because of everyone

who aren't sticking to the rules and threatening everyone

 

I'm angry about the fake news and lies

I'm angry that people paid the prize

I'm angry

I'm angry that the virus changed our lives

I'm angry that we can't see Mika live

I'm angry

 

It's coming out to get us, get us

Wear a mask and don't be careless

And one day we'll get over this quarantine

We've got this in common, come on,

stay high and stay strong

Cos one day we'll get over this awful quarantine

I guess songwriting isn't my strenght as I've never been able to write poems but I'll try my best... 

 

Quarantine, bring the freedom back to me :fisch:

 

Dear quarantine

why are you still here with me

all I want is to be free, please don't hold me back

Dear quarantine, will all the madness ever end?

Loneliness isn't a good friend

I've spent too much time at home

 

Oh baby, I'm missing, I'm missing, I'm missing my life

I'm missing all of these little things I used to do

And now you said stop

I'm missing, I'm missing all my friends

Missing the places I should have seen

And the plans I had for now

 

I'm missing the cafés, the movies, the travels

Missing the concerts and the sleepless nights

Missing the classes and missing the free time

I'm missing (dear quarantine)

Missing hanging out with no real task

Missing going shopping without a mask 

Missing dancing and not keeping distance, I'm missing

 

(to be continued :teehee:)

OK, here's my version of your lyrics all strung together to fit Mika's music. These lyrics are slightly different than those I posted earlier on Instagram because, of course, I left someone out -- so sorry! It seems no matter how much checking and double-checking I do, I always omit someone! I assure you it's not intentional. :(

 

Anyhow...

 

DEAR QUARANTINE

Quarantine, bring the freedom back to me

Dear Quarantine,
This house is so prisoning,
These four walls no good for me,
It's time for me to leave.

Dear Quarantine
You're my only company,
This room has become boring,
Please stop this agony!

Oh Covid I'm praying, I'm praying, I'm praying for us
I'm wondering just when are you gonna leave, hurry we are in a rush
It's crazy, it's crazy, to live like this
Take a mask if you go outside, don't give your mama a kiss

Wish I could go out, but I’m stuck inside
Wearing the same clothes,'cause there’s no social life
“Walk in the park” is a contradicting lie
I’m stuck here (Dear Quarantine)

Wear a mask and stay away at least six feet
Coronavirus it's in the air we breathe
This new normal is just not normal to me
I’m stuck here

Corona's gonna get us, get us
Wear a mask and don't be so careless
Wash your hands and isolate so one day we'll get over this quarantine

We all have this in common, come on,
Remember to stay high and to stay strong
Every single person, even you, even me
Will be virus-free

Dear Quarantine
Why'd you make life hard for me?
Midnight snacks are all I see,
I don't want you near!

Oh baby I'm tired, I'm tired, I'm tired of this.
I'm tired of all the fake news and the sadness
When will it ever stop?

Baby, I'm freakin, I'm freakin', I'm freakin' out
I'm freakin' out because of the stupid idiots
who are all still in doubt

Missing all the cafés, all the movies and nights out
Missing all the concerts and the good times when we'd shout
Missing all the classes and I don't mean to pout
I'm missing (Dear Quarantine)

Missing hanging out with no real task
Missing going shopping without a damn mask
Missing all the dancing and not keeping distance
I'm missing

But one day will be better, better
We’ll go out again, we’ll just be fatter
It won’t be forever we just got to keep together as MFC

Keep that head high, keep that chin up, chin up
There's one thing this virus can not stop
A spirit and the music that guides you and guides me
'til we live free

Quarantine, bring the freedom back to me
A virus named Covid-19 made me sick two whole weeks
Quarantine, I'm waiting for a new vaccine
It's coming soon, it won't be rushed
Then no more quarantine!

Quarantine, please don't hold me back
I am sick of filling every minute with a fatty snack (Dear Quarantine)
Quarantine, it took a while for me to see
That the quarantine fifteen is real, it caught up with me!

But one day will be better, better
We’ll go out again, we’ll just be fatter
It won’t be forever we just got to keep together as MFC
Keep that head high, keep that chin up, chin up
There's one thing that this virus can not stop
A spirit and the music that guides you and guides me
'til we live free

Corona's gonna get us, get us
Wear a mask and don't be so careless
Wash your hands and isolate so one day we'll get over this quarantine

Whaou , this is so good and you did so well singing Deb !

Congrats to all of you

 

Working all day long surrouded by this bad version of Corona  I just had some random ideas but no time to make them properly fit to the song's rythm.

 

But as you made a great effort singing for us yesterday , I'll share them  just for fun  (sorry for the bad English)

 

Dear quarantine ,

Your rules are made to protect us,

As long we're living with this damn virus ,

it's worth you cope with us.

 

So now I'm just cooking,cooking, again and again ,

Sometimes I'm just siping , ( Corona bier of course ......:naughty:)

Talking with my cats who love me when I'm staying,

Dear quarantine

 

But one day we'll be dancing ,

Singing ,loosing all the weight we had put in .

This day I will totaly forgive you dear quarantine

Wow! Thank you for making these into one song Deb-san! I think everyone did a great job!  Some parts are really funny. :D  And thank you for putting my name down as well! Even though I just ended up dropping an idea. It was kind of my desire, wasn't it. :sweatdrop: 
I like singing but this song "Dear Jealousy" is tongue twister for me and this Quarantine song is even more...!!! :lmfao:

I've only just realised that I missed the IG live because I thought it would be tonight! 😭 

 

Seriously can someone give me a poke when they happen?, I think that's the 4th I've missed! 

 

Anyway I love how the lyrics have been put together (thanks for including mine too!) and will take an hour out tonight to catch up on IGTV!
