The Pandemic is Closer
A Parody of “Come a Little Bit Closer” from Jay and the Americans
New lyrics by Steve Bryant

In a little café, just the other side of the border,
I got a case of swine flu; it came for free with my order.
Came back to the old USA,
Spread it around every day.
Now my co-workers have it,
I heard the newscaster say…
The pandemic is closer, I don’t know why,
It’s coming faster.
Whatever it is,
They’re gonna claim it’s just a man made disaster.

I started to puke,
I was a very sick Americano.
There’s no need to worry,
Said our own Janet Napolitano.
I heard the President say.
I was tested, but you’re all okay.
And I knew I was doomed,
When Geraldo started to say…
The pandemic is closer, I don’t know why,
It’s coming faster.
Whatever it is,
They’re gonna claim it’s just a man made disaster.

Did it come from the pigs, or the birds, or maybe Bin Laden?
I hope the CDC can find out before I start noddin’.
Someone better find a good way,
To stop my body’s decay,
It’s another illegal that shouldn’t be allowed to stay.
The pandemic is closer, I don’t know why,
It’s coming faster.
Whatever it is,
They’re gonna claim it’s just a man made disaster.
