The song’s lyrics reference barren grocery store shelves and out-of-stock toilet paper after stampedes of shoppers before lamenting on quarantine life.
“Quarantine, quarantine / drinking whiskey like vaccine / waving at the neighbors / social distancing,” Best and Montana sing together. “Quarantine, quarantine / wearing Lysol like sunscreen / quarantine, quarantine / oh, lonesome quarantine.”
The song goes on to refer to hunting and guns, and also issues a message of thanks to healthcare workers fighting coronavirus,
