SAVE ME FROM MYSELF

V1
Has it nearly been a year
That I’ve been stuck inside here?
Well I can tell you I’ve not wasted any time.
Yeah mum and Dad you would be proud
Of my achievements that astound
Even the greatest armchair critics of their kind.

V2
Look, Here’s what I call “Zoom corner”
Which I’ve painted a plain colour
And got all my soft toys firmly out of shot.
And out here in the hall
I’ve built a cat-fort 6 feet tall
But the kitten still prefers the recycling box.

CHORUS 1
Uh oh oh oh oh
Save me from myself
Uh oh oh oh oh
It’s been too long since I’ve seen anyone else.

V3
I’ve recreated the Last Supper
With a group of rubber ducks, I
Made a jelly baby opera,
Watched an episode of Oprah,
Built a tiny house from cheese
Whilst I was wearing a chemise
Cause when there’s no one here to stop ya
There’s no need to dress up proper

V4
I strapped a danish to each ear
So I could look like Princess Leah (leia)
Changed my background to that classic Falcon scene
<Star Wars theme mouth trumpet>
I learned the ukulele
Come on strum and sing along with me
We could be in Hawaii <extra bar 7 chord)

CHORUS 2
Uh oh oh oh oh
Save me from myself.
Uh oh oh oh oh
It’s been too long since I’ve seen anyone else.
Well lock me down
And jab me twice.
Let me out,
That would be nice
But uh oh oh someone
Save me from myself

Oh oh oh save me from nobody else but me.
