Lockdown Blues

I’ve never been a musical person. But back in February I got a little blue ukulele for my birthday. I never intended to inflict my “music” on you, but then coronavirus happened and the whole world went a bit weird and now – despite being unable to sing and virtually unable to play – I’ve written a blues song about being locked down with 4 kids (I’ve also started a cult, but that’s a different story!).

Back in 2019 I promised myself 2020 would be the year I pushed out of my comfort zone and do more things that scare me. This wasn’t what I envisioned, but it is really scary!

With thanks to the lovely Dru for filming a beautiful video to go with it.

The lyrics, for those of you that like them:

I’m on lockdown with 4 kids
Can’t even hear myself think
On lockdown with 4 kids
And I don’t even drink
I’m locked down with my babies
I love ‘em but they’re driving me crazy

8 in the morning
Askin’ is it lunch yet?
I said let’s play the quiet game
But they weren’t taking that bet
I’ve got the lockdown blues
Oh mumma’s got the lockdown blues

Mumma’s got the lockdown blues
We’ve been nowhere, how’d you lose your shoes?
Yeah I got the lockdown blues
Coz none of you can flush the loo

My coffee is cold
I’m losing hair til I’m bald
Can’t you just act as sweet
As when Grandma last called?
I’ve got he lockdown blues
Oh Mumma’s got the lockdown blues

I’m on lockdown with 4 kids
Can’t even hear myself think
On lockdown with 4 kids
Dishes are piled in my sink
I’m locked down with my babies
I love ‘em but they’re driving me crazy

Oh I got the lockdown blues
Did you do what I asked you to?
Yeah I’ve got the lockdown blues
Don’t you have some school work to do?

I’m on lockdown with 4 kids
Can’t even hear myself think
On lockdown with 4 kids
And I don’t even drink
On lockdown with my babies
I love ‘em but they’re driving me crazy

I’m locked down with 4 kids
And yeah they’re driving me mad
But at least I know they’re safe
So it isn’t that bad
I got them locked down blues
Yeah Mumma’s got them lockdown blues
