I am, you are, we are in isolation

At the end of this weeks Woiyne Toiyme I want a ROUSING and heartfelt sing-a-long, Lucy and I have re-worked ‘I am Australian’ to reflect what’s going on in the world. The words are below so you can sing your little hearts out with me this Friday night!

Em x

I am in Isolation

I came from the bedroom

No pants, my bra undone.

I gave up on personal hygiene

On the arvo of day one.

 

I stumble to the lounge room

And stare at my three kids

Their screen time has quadrupled

But I don’t give a shit

 

I’ve watched all of Netflix,

Given the house a deep cleanse

Run out of stuff to say to the other half

Fuck I miss my friends

 

I’ve called out from my balcony

But I can’t see anyone

Cos I don’t live in Europe

I am Australian

 

We are one. But we are many

And from all the lands on Earth we’re shunned

We share online, and whinge with one voice.

I am, you are in isolation.

 

A morning glass of rosé is

My only source of fun

I am a frigging hero

I’m in isolation

 

I miss the shops, I miss the sky, we’re in it for the long run

We’ve got everything we need, unless we need to wipe our bum.

 

We are one. But we are many

And from all the lands on Earth we’re shunned

We share online, and whinge with one voice.

I am, you are in isolation.

 

We are bored, but we are ready

To avoid all and every one

We’ll flatten curves, and social distance

I am, you are in isolation.

 

We stay home, to save our seniors

And to help our friends with dodgy lungs

We’ll share a dream, and beat this virus.

I’ll stay, you stay, in hibernation.

I am, you are, we’re in… isolation.

  1. This is gold, you are a gem Em.
    It was my dream to be in the Australian Youth Choir singing this song as a kid. But Even though I was accepted, I couldn’t join coz mum said the socks (And probs the feed) were too expensive (lol)

  2. Oh my gosh this is incredible!! Seriously Em you need to sing this song on the project tonight!!
    The rest of Australia needs to hear this!!
