A hard COVID Christmas

by | Dec 18, 2020

I wanted to make another ukulele Christmas song video this year, but with the pandemic, it’s been really hard to find any holiday spirit.

I remembered the Dolly Parton song “Hard Candy Christmas” from the musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (which I performed in at Walterdale Theare in 2010) and I thought I could learn that to record. A little more sombre, although still hopeful. Perfect for the times.

But then I got inspired. Why not make those simple rhyming lyrics a little more personal and really embrace the full pandemic holiday experience?

Hard COVID Christmas

(alternate lyrics by Marsha Amanova)

Hey, maybe I’ll knit a sock
Maybe I’ll take a walk
Maybe I’ll meditate
Maybe we’ll stay up late bingeing TV
Me and Aldon Bee
Maybe I’ll try to read
Maybe we’ll smoke some weed
Maybe I’ll make some tea
Maybe we’ll role play D&D online
We will be just

Fine and dandy
Lord this is a hard COVID Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down
I’ll be fine and dandy
Lord this is a hard COVID Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down

Hey, maybe I’ll bake some bread
Maybe I’ll shave my head
Maybe I’ll write a poem
Maybe I’ll stay at home and sing this song
Me, I’ll carry on
Maybe I’ll get on zoom
Maybe I’ll scroll some doom
Maybe I’ll play guitar
Maybe I’ll be a star in my own mind
Me, I’ll be just

Fine and dandy
Lord this is a hard COVID Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down
I’ll be fine and dandy
Lord this is a hard COVID Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down

‘Cause I’ll be fine
I’ll be fine
I’ll have a glass of wine
And I’ll be fine
