This could have been over by now this could
Have been over by now this could have been
Over by now this could have been over
By now this could have been over by now
If we had only followed the advice
Of the post in your feed which one was it
Scroll back a little ways now stop right there
No that wasn’t it but it’s kinda close
The one where the guy coughed into his hand
To make a point and then he coughed again
Only this time it was for real and now
No one listens because we are humans
Which by definition means we’re awful
Yet still this could have been over by now
