Just another Euro(vision) song

As Eurovision 2020 is cancelled because of the Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic, here’s a spoof song about a wannabe group who’ve lost their chance to shine. On reflection it probably owes more to satirical songs from old shows like Not the Nine O’Clock News.

And for those interested, the lyrics are below.

Intro
(Ooh, ooh)
Eurovision nightmare
Corona virus blues
Lost our chance
Lost our fans
Covid nineteen – we were robbed, we were robbed

Verse
Drinking in the green room
Lost in drunken thoughts
Waiting for my moment
One that never comes

That Corona virus
Sent to annoy us
Stopped the TV programme
Stopped the music too

Chorus
Just another Euro song
Full of dreams and hopes
Just another upbeat song line
Made to a happy beat
Just another Eurovision
Just another virus victim

Verse
Juries busy voting
Based on national lines
Waiting for the winner
Now we’ll never know

“Waiting for Helsinki”
Words we’ll never hear
Wait for next year’s contest
That’s the one we’ll win

Chorus
Just another Euro song
Full of dreams and hopes
Just another upbeat song line
Made to a happy beat
Just another Eurovision
Just another virus victim

Bridge
We could have won this
Without that virus
You screwed my dreams

Chorus
Just another Euro song
Full of dreams and light
Doo do do do do do do do ooh
Doo do do do do do
Doo do do do do do do do
Doo do do do do do do ooo
(Corona!)
