about

Inspired by the amazing co-operative board game Pandemic, created by Matt Leacock. (If you haven't played this game, you should!)

lyrics

You head to Cairo
And I’ll fly to Santiago
We’ll try to put
This fever to bed

Then dash off to Paris
'Cause the plague will never spare us
We’ve got to hurry
Before the world is dead

I’ll shift you to Seoul
cause we’re inches from the goal
Of ridding all of
Asia of disease

Then we’ll head to Essen
Where they’ve learned a new lesson
About covering their mouths
When they sneeze


Outbreak
This Pandemic’s
Getting epic
It’s just you and me
Racing for the cure

Outbreak
This infection
Beyond direction
If we don’t win
We’re all doomed for sure


The infection rate is climbing
And we’ve got to watch our timing
We’ve got to get
To the research station

I’m tired from the fight
I need one quiet night
Please airlift me out
To vacation

Outbreak
This Pandemic’s
Getting epic
It’s just you and me
Racing for the cure

Outbreak
This infection
Beyond direction
If we don’t win
We’re all doomed for sure

L.A.'s gone away
San Fran’s in the pan
New York got the spork
And we lost all Japan
Goodbye Chennai
Milan, it is gone
Istanbul is full
'Cause we didn’t play catan

Outbreak
This Pandemic’s
Getting epic
It’s just you and me
Racing for the cure

Outbreak
This infection
Beyond direction
We didn't win
We were all doomed for sure
We were doomed for sure
