Here's a lockdown special, folks, from the ol' home studio in Govanhill, Glasgow...

This goes out to all the health workers and carers in hospitals, residential homes and houses everywhere. Thanks for all your amazing work guys.You deserve no effort to be spared in keeping you safe and protected while you do such an important job for us all!

oh baby you're a fighter
your eyes are getting brighter
that's why i'm holding up a lighter
holding up my phone

you've been deep into the badlands
but know that you're in safe hands
and see whatever happens
you're not alone

cos you've got blue angels
watching over your head
blue angles looking after you
heaven bless your breath
and the tired legs
of the blue angel crew

grim leaders tried to bleed them
when sense said they should feed them
and now we really need them
things are getting worse

blue angels on the front line
sent out in sack and old twine
giving everything to save life
falling from earth

oh we've got blue angels
watching over our heads
blue angels filling the icus
course you get upset
jesus wept
it's a blue angel crew

dooo doooo....

we've got blue angels
watching over our heads
blue angels making the headline news
who'll protect what's left
of the nhs
and the blue angel crew?
