(Watch) ICU Nurses in UK Change the Lyrics and Sing Sting’s “Every Breath You Take” for COVID Patients and Workers

Share

This past week on England’s “Good Morning Britain,” a 100-member Zoom choir made up of ICU staff from National Health Service, appeared on the show and sang their own version of The Police hit, “Every Breath You Take.” Sting allowed them to change the lyrics to taise money for the NHS after COVID has ravaged the country. Their revamped single went straight to the top of the charts!

Here’s their Zoom video. It’s wonderful.

EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE – new words by Jackie Shears (with Alison Pittard)

Every breath you take!
Every move you make!
Every time you ache!
Every sound you make!
We watch over you!
0.31!
Every single day!
When you’re in real pain!
When you feel afraid!
Every night you stay!
We watch over you!
0.47!
Oh don’t you fear!
ICU is here!
When your poor heart aches!
And you’re life’s at stake!
1.04!
When we ventilate!
Then your lungs inflate!
When you’re feeling scared!
And you can’t be heard!
We watch over you!
1.22!
Since this bug we’ve been here without a fail!
Finding treatments and care to save the day!
Your family says that it’s you they can’t replace!
They feel so sad and they long for your embrace!
Keep your masks on people, people (1.44)!
pleeeeeaase!
(Middle 8)!
Every breath you take!
Every move you make!
Every time you ache!
Every sound you make!
When your life’s at stake!
We watch over you!
Oh don’t you fear!
ICU is here!
When your poor heart aches!
And you’re life’s at stake!
2.30!
Every breath you take!
Every move you make!
Every time you ache!
Every sound you make!
We watch over you!
Every sound you make!
Every breath you take!
We watch over you!

(Every single day)!
(Every night you stay), !
(When you’re in real pain)!
We watch over you
(We resuscitate)!
(And we ventilate)!
(Let your lungs inflate)!
We watch over you
(Covid isn’t fake)!
(Wear a mask please mate)!
(Book to vaccinate)!
We watch over you
(Every single day)!
(Every night you stay), !
(When you’re in real pain)!
We watch over you
(We resuscitate)!
(And we ventilate)!
(Let your lungs inflate)!
We watch over you
(Covid isn’t fake)!
(Wear a mask please mate)!
(Book to vaccinate)!
We watch over you
(Every single day)!

(When you’re in real pain)!
We watch over you
(We resuscitate)!
