Taking to Instagram to share his version of the classic 80s dancefloor filler produced by Nile Rodgers, Jay Kay captioned his video post: “Only another 3 months to go…!”
“Lockdown, put on your face mask and watch TV/ Lockdown, to the sound of the kids all screaming at me,” Jamiroquai sings, reworking the song’s original lyrics. “Lockdown, trying to avoid the COVID-19/ Lockdown, I’ve got a headache, a serious headache.”
Hitting the bridge, he belts out: “And if you dry cough, I’ll run from you/ A fever so high with diarrhea/ You know this viral flu is trying to kill you too/ If you should run under a bus it is because you’re bored.”
Watch Jamiroquai sing his version of the song in the video below:
The artist, who on YouTube goes by the name Urian Hackney, films himself playing the different parts of the song on drums, guitar, and bass – and also does his best gravelly voiced Kurt Cobain impression.
He rewords the lyrics, including “Wipe every surface clean (I sanitise!)/ Stock up on rice and beans (I sanitise!)” at the verse, and “stay inside” at the chorus.
