Come on Stay Home: The “Vogue” Coronavirus Parody we all need right Now.

Relephant read: Elephant’s Continually-updating Coronavirus Diary~ Waylon


My good friend, currently holed up in Amsterdam, sent me this—and before the video was finished, I was already writing this up.

Chris Mann created this clever parody to Madonna’s 1990 hit, “Vogue.” But watch that one later, let’s enjoy this fun version, more relevant to our brave new world right now.

Sing along, the lyrics are below:

“Stay Home Vogue” (a Madonna “Vogue” Parody)
Lyrics by Chris Mann

Stay Home

Look around, everywhere you turn is Covid
It’s everywhere that you go (just look around)
I know you’ve tried, everything you can to escape
This social distance sh*t show (what a sh*t show)

But just settle in to the quarantine
Flatten the Corona curve
They say the cure is up to you and me
It’s called a sick day, so bitch you best stay home

Come on, stay home (home)
Work remotely and Zoom your meetings (and Zoom your meetings)
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, stay home (home)
Watch the TV and eat your feelings (and eat your feelings)
You know you can do it

All you need is your own imagination
So use it that’s what its for (Chris, tell me more)
Read a book, that’s that thing that’s filled with paper
But i can’t tell you for sure (Can’t say for sure)

It’s makes no difference if you’re black or white
Corona’s coming for you
Do the cool thing now and just stay inside
You’re a hermit star, yes that’s what you are, you know it

Come on, stay home (home)
Work remotely and Zoom your meetings
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, stay home (home)
Watch the TV and eat your feelings
You know you can do it

Home is where the heart is
So forget your friends outside it
First day in feels like magic
But soon you’ll be a bat-shit lunatic
I’ve got to go, I’ve got to go
NO! Isolate for the cure

Come on, stay home
(home is where the heart is) (and Zoom your meetings)
Stay home
(home is where the heart is) (and eat your feelings)

Netflix, Hulu, HBO
Bach-e-lor and Game of Thrones
Conan, Ellen, QVC
Eat the cover of a magazine
Churn butter, needlepoint
Pick your nose and smoke a joint
Wrap your head up like a nun
PornHub masturba-si-on
Wheel of Fortune, Oprah’s OWN
The Greatest British Baking Show
Modern Family, Shark Tank, too
Grace and Frankie, we love you
Fixer Upper, Will and Grace
Deepak Chopra meditate
Don’t go out there, let’s sit to it
Couch potato, there’s nothing to it
Stay home

Stay home, stay home
Stay home, stay home

Ooh, you’ve got to
Work remotely and Zoom your meetings
Ooh, you’ve got to just
Watch the TV and eat your feelings
Ooh, you’ve got just
Stay Home”
