How Much Longer? Songs About Waiting

We stay in to stay safe. We practice social distancing.  We wear masks and gloves. We visit one another on little screens. And we pace and we squirm and we wiggle and we have watched our favorite movies and TV shows so many times that we have learned all the lines and memorized the credits.  It will all end, but when?  Waiting is no fun, and it never was.

I'm Not Waiting In Line - Train

 

I'm not waiting in line
And I'm not changing my mind for you
I'm not wasting my time
I'm not waiting in line
Unless you want me to
