Gabbie Hanna – 2020 Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro]
2020
It’s been one hell of a year
There’s too many tragedies to list this year
But I guess I’ll try

[Verse 1]
Between
Losing Kobe
Killer bees
Fighting racist in the street
The world is riddled with disease
Fucking human trafficking
The president can’t stop fighting literally everybody

[Bridge]
Genocide in Armenia
Lots of lies in the media
Fire in California
And even more in Australia
A broken royal family
Fuck you, Harvey Weinstein
Explosion in Lebanon
And all the toilet paper is gone

[Outro]
Let’s hope
2021, 2021
Will be better
