What are the lyrics of the song?
The song starts with the lines –
I love my grandma so much, i know she loves me too
But thanks to the stupid virus, there are new grandma rules.
Don’t touch grandma, leave her alone.
You can spend a quarter to call on the phone.
Cuz grandma likes to pinch your cheeks and kiss your head and hug
But i don’t want my grandma catching any superbug.
… and so on.
This catchy song is only 1 minute and 12 seconds long, feels like a jolly good country song. In this comic song, Fallon and Sandler talk about how grandmas love to bake us cookies and knit sweaters, but we must stay away from grandma because this virus spreads through touch. It ends with a line that you can play and meet your grandma after all this is done, but till then you can also see her from 6 feet away.
The song also makes a mention of Zoom, a video calling app which has now gained immense popularity owing to the lockdown. Many people have started video calling their friends and relatives via Zoom. Many offices which have now resorted to work from home, also use Zoon to host their meetings.
