Oh you’re a real tough virus with a short history
Of compromising lungs like the ones in me
That’s okay, you’re not gonna do it
Roll up my sleeve, let’s get down to it

Give me my vaccine shot
Go on and give me my vaccine shot
Give me my vaccine shot
I’ll even pay

You come on with a fever
You don’t fight fair
That’s okay, see if I care
Floating droplets, all in vain
Soon I’ll be on the streets again

Give me my vaccine shot
Go on and give me my vaccine shot
Dr. Fauci’s real hot
I’ve gotta say

So you’re a real tough virus with a short history
Of taking taste and smell of everything we see
Before you put my name down as another case
Here’s an injection, put you in your place

Give me my vaccine shot
Go on and give me my vaccine shot
Give me my vaccine shot
I’m not your prey

Give me my vaccine shot
Go on and give me my vaccine shot
Freedom’s what I have sought
It starts today!
