Herd Immunity                 [Part 3 of my Tennessee Trilogy]

 

Original song lyrics by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

A relyric of "Please Come To Boston" by Dave Loggins. (I do NOT own any rights to that song.)

 

Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

Reopen Memphis for the Springtime.

 

I need to stroll along Beale Street.

 

And take in the Graceland tour. 

 

The ghost of Elvis hangs out in the bathroom.

 

Would The King have worn a mask until they found a cure?

 

Reopen Memphis.

 

They said: Cool, get herd immunity.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Yeah, they said:

 

You've stayed at home for weeks now, nice and snug.

 

So that science could fight this bug.

 

But that's got old.

 

Here's a plan to save Tennessee.

 

Know that "Herd" is the word.

 

As in herd immunity.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Reopen Nashville in the Summer.

 

For Hattie B's I deliver,

 

And to every one we say:

 

Protect yourself by staying within four walls.

 

Still they open up the door, and say "Hi" anyway.

 

Reopen Nashville.

 

So the Sounds can make a double play.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Yeah, they said:

 

You've stayed at home for weeks now, nice and snug.

 

So that science could fight this bug.

 

But that's got old.

 

Here's a plan to save Tennessee.

 

Know that "Herd" is the word.

 

As in herd immunity.

 

 

BRIDGE 1

 

Lucky me, I've got N-95.

 

'Cept I can't get my flow on in a mask.

 

But I'll keep it on to stay alive.

 

'Til we get a vaccine.

 

Or tablets from a Walgreens.

 

Or better still, herd immunity!

 

 

CHORUS

 

Yeah, they said:

 

You've stayed at home for weeks now, nice and snug.

 

So that science could fight this bug.

 

But that's got old.

 

Here's a plan to save Tennessee.

 

Know that "Herd" is the word.

 

As in herd immunity.

 

 

BRIDGE 2

 

There once was a gal from a Nashville suburb,

 

Who thought that her COVID immunity was superb.

 

She beat it the first time with just a fever.

 

And assumed that next Spring would be easier.

 

But the mutated virus culled her from the herd.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Reopen Knoxville for the Autumn

 

Cause the Vols should beat OU.

 

And vanquish the S. E. C.

 

We'll remember time around Old City forever.

 

With a stop for crafted beer or shot of Knox Whiskey.

 

Reopen Knoxville. 

 

They said: Cool, get herd immunity.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Yeah, they said:

 

You've stayed at home for weeks now, nice and snug.

 

So that science could fight this bug.

 

But that's got old.

 

Here's a plan to save Tennessee.

 

Know that "Herd" is the word.

 

As in herd immunity.

 

 

The End.
