We didn’t hesitate a bit, we got the Pfiser shot.
Don’t think that we’re immune, O, no, the fact is we are not.
The vaccine is protection so you don't get really sick,
But if you get the virus, your recovery is quick.

The point of this is to avoid the kind of suffering
Where families will only hope that you’re recovering.
Since many never did go home, I said, "I’m sure I’ll be
The first to get a Covid shot when it is time for me."

I know the world is sick of masks and social distance, too.
I am, as well, but now it’s time, the time is right for you...
To go and get your Covid shot when your group qualifies
And we can finally rid ourselves of days we’ve agonized...

Because so many people died, more people every day!
So if we can achieve an end to all of this, I say,
“Let’s do whatever we can do to stop the madness now.”
Agree that's vaccination? Well, then I say, “Take a bow!”

So if you're wond’ring if you should, I'll tell you that I did!
You get yours, too, and if you do, don't keep your choice well-hid.
If we can get a lot of folks to get their vaccination,
We’ll have that “herd immunity” and Covid-free elation!

And won't it be just wonderful to finally be the way,
The way we used to be? Oh, such a happy, happy day!
No masks or keeping faraway from those we love so much.
For me, I cannot wait till I can simply hug and touch...

The ones I've missed, to share a kiss, it’s simply overdue!
For granted these, no, never, please, that's something I won’t do.
I'll cherish every moment and each person that I love,
I’ll hang on tight, with all my might, to Covid give a shove!
