“Yesterday, COVID-19 seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though it’s here to stay,
Oh I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, there’s not half the shops there used to be,
And there’s slippers where my shoes should be,
Oh yesterday, came suddenly.

Why it had to grow, I don’t know,
We couldn’t say,
While we stay at home,
How I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
My girlfriend lives more than 2k away
Oh how I long for yesterday.

Why it had to grow, I don’t know,
We couldn’t say,
While I stay at home,
How I long for yesterday.

Anyway, we have lots and lots of games to play,
And we have a place to hide away,
Tomorrow there’ll be brighter days.’

 My Dad came up with the idea and we finished it together (remotely) over the last few days. I thought it would be fun to record and share :)

In fairness.

The Cronins –  A Day In The Life

A cover version of the Beatles track as tribute to Sgt. Pepper’s 50th anniversary.

Mick Cronin muses –

I know you shouldn’t go there and try and cover this but we did.

We are Beatles freaks so decided to spend a few hours last Thursday 31st May to record and film this with the intention of putting it out on the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper on June 1st.
