Pharma Pharma, Gimme the News
To the tune of “Dr. Dr., Give Me The News (I got a bad case)” by Robert Palmer

COVID-19 spreads like wildfire.
Situation’s becoming truly dire.
We’re waiting for breakthrough vaccines
To make us safe; to make us serene.

Pharma, pharma, gimme the news.
We gotta bad case of COVID blues.
Two shots and the worry’s lost.
We gotta lose these COVID blues.

Pfizer’s first —  Moderna’s here
With great results, we all can cheer
Many new vaccines, they’re on their way
2021’s a brand new day

Pharma, pharma gimme the news.
We gotta bad case of COVID blues.
Two sticks and the science mix
We gotta lose these COVID blues.

Immunity  —  Full herd’s a must
We have to earn back the public trust
First responders are first in line.
The rest of us won’t be far behind.

America is now fighting back
Against this vicious viral attack
Shake our fists, knock on wood.
We’ve got it bad, but we’ve got it good.

Pharma, pharma, gimme the news.
We gotta bad case of COVID blues.
Two shots and the worry’s lost.
We gotta lose these COVID blues.

Lyrics by Dave Johnson, CEO of 4sight Health
Performed by John Zam, troubadour at 4sight Health
