Whitesnake singer David Coverdale has recorded himself singing a short acoustic song called Coronavirus Blues.
The singer, who we presume is practicing social distancing at his home in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains outside Reno, Nevada, released the song via social media.
The short song features the following lyrics, in which Cov implores the coronavirus to get packing.
F*ck off, F*ck off
We don’t want you anymore
F*ck off, F*ck off
Don’t come knockin’ at my door
F*ck off, F*ck off
And don’t ever show your F*cking face no more
Reaction from the singer’s social media following was largely positive, with healthcare worker Louise Anne saying, “I am going to show this and make it our song while washing our hands.”
Earlier this week, Coverdale announced that Whitesnake’s 2020 touring plans have been cancelled to allow the singer to undergo bilateral inguinal hernia surgery.
“Once again it breaks my heart to be the bearer of even more sad new affecting Whitesnake’s touring schedule for this increasingly challenging year,” said Coverdale.
