Neil Diamond took to Twitter over the weekend to share an acoustic version of his classic “Sweet Caroline” but with updated lyrics to reflect the coronavirus outbreak.
“I know we’re going through a rough time right now but I love ya,” Diamond says at the start of the video. “And I think maybe if we sing together, well, we’ll just feel a little bit better. Give it a try, okay?”
Diamond then starts singing the hit song from 1969 before changing some of the classic lyrics to be more in line with current social distancing practices.
“Hands, touching hands” was changed to “hands, washing hands,” while “reaching out / Touching me, touching you” became “reaching out / Don’t touch me, I won’t touch you.”
