Artist's Notes

I belong to a songwriter's group in West Michigan.    This month the songwriting challenge was to compose a song that used Portmanteaus's.   A portmanteau is a word that blends the sounds and combines the meaning of two other words.   This song includes at least one different portmanteau in each verse and chorus (Staycation, Covidiots, gastropub, ginormous, Netiquette, guilele, Spanglish).    The subject matter of the song is inspired by my personnel Covid-19 lock down experiences.


Lyrics

Staycation 

Words & Music © 2020  Brent L Godfrey                 

 

Chorus: 

We?re on an extended Staycation until the pandemic ends

An extended Staycation, I miss all my friends

This extended Staycation who knows how long it?ll last

When there are so many Covidiots who refuse to wear a mask

Social Distancing isn?t all that  bad

Though I know a lot of people are feeling pretty sad.

 

Verse1: 

Used to meet up with friends for dinner at our favorite gastropub

Singing songs at the open mic sure was a lot of fun

Used to go to a lot of concerts and play pickle ball

Now I just share songs with friends on internet zoom calls.

 

Chorus 

 

Verse2: 

We used to eat out several times a week

Now we have a ginormous garden to ensure we get enough to eat

We?re attending appointments virtually and learning Netiquette

Switched from smoking to edibles haven?t caught it yet.

 

Instrumental Chorus 

 

Verse3:   

We?ve made Life style changes for the good

Took up Yoga and Meditation Cooking fresh healthy foods

I?m playing my guilele and learning Spanglish

Spending time in nature, I found I like to fish.

 

Chorus 

      

Just wear your mask and stay healthy out there
