My name is David Nelson Ostrosser. I go by DNO so you can say it quicker, and I'm so lucky because I write songs and sing and I just happen to live a few blocks away from a genius musical arranger and multi-instrumentalist named René Gely in Gatineau, Québec, Canada. So he and I are putting together a ton of new music and we're kicking it all off with this song. 

 LYRICS 

Cover Up Your Faceholes, Baby 

Refrain: 
Cover Up Your Faceholes Baby 
We're goin' out tonight 
Don't forget to forget your lipstick 
'Cause they might as well be white 
Nobody wants to see your ruby lips 
These days it just ain't right 
So cover up your faceholes baby, tonight 

Verse: 
Your favourite band will be playing 
And we'll all want to sing along 
They're down at the drive-in theatre 
And we'll honk after every song 
A tribal rock and roll experience 
What more could you ask? 
Although they might not hear you cheering through the mask 

(Refrain) 

(Solo) 

Bridge : 
Later it'll be just you and me 
A little romance, a little class 
Sittin' in a fancy restaurant 
Behind the plexiglass 
They'll bring us our cordon bleu 
Under a silver bell 
It'll look just great but it 
Might taste like Purell 

Refrain: 
So Cover Up Your Faceholes Baby 
We're goin' out tonight 
Don't forget to forget your lipstick 
'Cause they might as well be white 
Nobody wants to see your ruby lips 
These days it just ain't right 
So cover up your faceholes baby, tonight

Cover Up Your Faceholes Baby

David Nelson Ostrosser (DNO)

Just to get you rockin' a little bit, the joyfully ironic "Faceholes" leaves a little note for posterity to remind us of the way the crazy 2020s began. A rollicking, slide-drenched Southern rock celebration.
