Before you read this, let me make this clear to thee , this is about tourists not family you see.
Family can come, they come to protect, they have a vested interest in what is left
They come to Orkney, it is family they see , they take care of their actions, to save you and me
Hello, my name Is Jim, from Leicester that’s me, I am a factory manager, and its 6 friends and me
We are coming to Orkney, after Viewing Orkney .com, it looks so bright and so clean, and really, quite warm !
We hired a big van, big boys we will be, so space it quite tight for my friends and me
Golf clubs and all, were like beans in a tin, can’t wait to get to Orkney to stretch and settle in
It’s the day we set off, I packed with delight, golf bags in the van and everything’s right
I am right hot and bothered, think it must be, the excitement of my holiday and the things we will see
The next day we travel all the way north, stopping for coffee and petrol of course
So tired I do feel, and my throats mighty sore, must be the driving not anything more
We get on the boat and a leaflet, are given,
with instruction, to keep Orkney safe, when we are, on holiday heaven
The leaflet it says, if we don’t feel too great, to report for a test to keep Orkney safe
I popped it in the van, and drive off the boat, my head really hurts, as does my throat
We stop at the accommodation where we will stay, with beautiful views just a heartbeat away
The morning does break, as does my sweat, I can’t get ill now, we have sights to see yet
We go to the cafes, and pub for a pint, and go through the town, and golf all around
We drive through to Evie, and Birsay too, and stop at Tescos for a snack or two
We sit at the Brough this is heaven indeed, I just wish I felt better, but I will take heed
It’s a cough, and my throat that’s causing me pain, oh no get back to the van, quick, it looks like rain
I remember the leaflet, and read in dismay if a test came back positive, 14 days! I would stay
It’s the rules of the virus, a quarantine break, to keep Orkney safe from a COVID outbreak
I am so sorry guys, this I cannot do, my job needs me back home , and my family too
But three days are left, so lets soldier on, lets have some fun, we don’t have too long,
Its beaches and pubs and gin, and some rum , Its fair helped my throat ,it almost feels numb
All that gin, and all of that booze, I had a great time, but so sorry you lose, I left something of mine ?
I go on the boat , I had a great time, but so sorry guys , I left COVID BEHIND !!!!
