lofi relyricization of harnick/bock song from fiddler on the roof for the sars-cov-2 era. another quarantune!

hmm. apparently this idea has also been done, a few days ago, quite well and somewhat more thoroughly. guess i should review the literature for the state of the art before undertaking such things. but i didn't, and this one is mine.

lyrics:
maskmaker maskmaker
make me a mask
two plys of cotton
that's all i ask
maskmaker maskmaker
sit at your singer
and make me a perfect mask

maskmaker maskmaker
i'll bring my bandanas
if you've nothing to do
if you're going bananas
cover my face up so i can buy food
and a break from this solitude

for earloops
you can use hairbands
to hold it
as i sniffle and cough
a noseclip might
keep it from snagging
my stubble and sliding right off

maskmaker maskmaker
executive orders
have kept me all cooped up
alone in my quarters
the pantry is empty the larders are bare
so please make a mask i can wear

for papa
the family tartan
for mama
something flowery and bright
for me well i'd just be heartened
if i could buy groceries tonight

maskmaker maskmaker
make me a mask
stitch me a stitch
of cotton not bask
maskmaker maskmaker
if you're up to the task
oh make me a perfect mask
