Social distancing to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus has left millions of Americans mostly isolated and stir-crazy, wondering what to do with themselves.

These strange times have left may people broadcasting their restlessness to the world via social media.

While cooped up at home this week, Massachusetts-based comedian Dana Jay Bein, turned his COVID-19 angst into song lyrics to the tune of Queen's 1975 hit "Bohemian Rhapsody."

He shared the timely version of the lyrics via Twitter, calling to "Coronavirus Rhapsody":

Is this a sore throat?
Is this just allergies?
Caught in a lockdown
No escape from reality.
Don't touch your eyes
Just hand sanitize quicklyyyy
I'm just a poor boy, no job security
Because of easy spread, even though
washed your hands, laying low
I look out the window, the curve doesn't look flatter to me
To me

Bein's replies have filled up with clips of people singing the parody lyrics. The initial Tweet has been shared over 131,000 times and accumulated nearly 440,000 likes.
