Jon Pumper – My Corona Home

Door het Coronavirus is er nu voor veel artiesten, muzikanten extra tijd vrijgekomen. Hun optredens zijn afgelast met jammergenoeg minder inkomen.

Om deze akelige situatie toch wat rooskleuriger te maken zijn er artiesten die er een liedje over schrijven. Eén daarvan is Jon Pumper die het lied My Corona Home opnam. Hij gebruikte daarvoor de muziek van het lied Kokomo van The Beach Boys.

De videoclip is grappig en ik denk dat al wie in quarantaine zit de situatie perfect begrijpt

Onderaan de video’s vind je de songtekst van het lied.

Het originele nummer van The Beach Boys werd uitgebracht in 1988 en is terug te vinden op het album Still Cruisin’ maar ook op de soundtrack van de film Cocktail uit 1988 met Tom Cruise in de hoofdrol.

Kokomo stond op nummer 1 in ondermeer Japan, De Verenigde Staten en Australie waar het maar liefst 2 maanden op de 1ste plaats bleef staan.

 

Due to the Coronavirus, many artists and musicians now have extra free time. Their performances have been canceled with unfortunately less income.

To make this grim situation a little brighter, there are artists who write a song about it. One of them is Jon Pumper who recorded the song My Corona Home. He used the music of the song Kokomo by The Beach Boys.

At the bottom of the videos you will find the lyrics of the song.

The original version by The Beach Boys was released in 1988 and can be found on the album Still Cruisin ‘as well as on the soundtrack of the 1988 movie Cocktail starring Tom Cruise.

Kokomo became a number 1 hit in the US, Japan and Australia where it stayed on the top of the lists for 2 months

 

My Corona Home (Kokomo) – Jon Pumper (2020)

Original version – The Beach Boys (1988)

Lyrics

Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take ya
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don’t we go
Cause we can’t, we’re in

Quarantine, in our own Corona homes
That’s where you have to go to stay away from it all
Dinner’s from a can, afternoons coloring with crayons
It’s been thirteen seconds since I last went to go wash my hands
In my Corona home

A Rubik’s, Corn Flake-ahs, don’t give me handshake-ahs
Please remov-ah, your mama, time to watch my dramas
No labor, No razor, Out of toilet paper
In my Corona Home,

I’ve spent the last few days all alone
Playing with styrofoam
In my corona home

My feet they reek, haven’t showered in a week
Browsing online memes, panic shopping for groceries
And by and by we’ll defy the guidelines from the CDC
Lost my appetite, cocktails during business skypes
No one comes to socialize, it’s an introverted paradise
In my corona home

No moolah, for take-out, oh we shouldn’t make out
Haven’t changed my, pajamas, learning how to samba
Nintendo, Lumbago, time to Marie Condo
In our Corona Homes,

We shouldn’t ask, how long this will go
Don’t think we want to know
In our Corona Homes.
