about

A little song to commemorate my pandemic experience. Thanks to everybody who sent their voice clips, to my fellow house-bound musicians for their home-made instrumental parts, and to Bobby Morales for mixing the track and showing me the ropes.

lyrics

HELLO FROM MY BASEMENT - Barbra Lica

All my friends are far away
They’re stuck at home with toilet paper rolls
Paper rolls

And I’ve got seasonal allergies
So my neighbours are afraid of me and my runny nose
Runny nose

But even if it’s Armageddon
Everyone still needs a friend n’
Now we’ve got technology to say

Hello from my Basement
Hello from my living room
Hello from my balcony
Been counting up the tumbleweed

Hello from these four walls
That separate us all and honey
Here’s to looking further down the road
To holding hands and never letting go
To more than just hello

I tried to buy some groceries
But they didn’t have a thing I need in stock
No not in stock

So I guess I’ll live on frozen peas
And vitamins and American Whiskey
On the rocks

And when the zombie hordes come by
To eat our brains like apple pie
Just hit me up on Facetime and I’ll say

Hello from my Basement
Hello from my living room
Hello from my balcony
Been counting up the tumbleweed

Hello from these four walls
That separate us all and honey
Here’s to looking further down the road
To holding hands and never letting go
To more than just hello

No I can’t wait for long hugs
Using all my fingers when I fix my makeup
Jazz clubs and dance halls
Eating out at restaurants

Hello from my Basement
Hello from my living room
Hello from my balcony
Been counting up the tumbleweed

Hello from these four walls
That separate us all and honey
Here’s to looking further down the road

Hello honey, hello
Hello honey, hello

Hello from my basement
