Rock music fans were gifted with a surprise drop from two music legends, Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl — and its lyrics are ones we can all relate to. 

The Rolling Stones singer and Foo Fighters frontman released a song on Tuesday titled “Eazy Sleazy,” a catchy song about the trials and tribulations of the pandemic. It touches on subjects familiar to anyone in lockdown, such as masks, anti-vaxxers, Zoom calls, and even Tik Tok. 

The 77-year-old Mick Jagger posted it on Twitter along with a message: 

“I wanted to share this song that I wrote about coming out of lockdown, with some much needed optimism — thank you to Dave Grohl for jumping on drums, bass and guitar, it was a lot of fun working with you on this-hope you all enjoy Eazy Sleazy!” 

Part of the lyrics include:

THAT'S A PRETTY MASK/ BUT NEVER TAKE A CHANCE TIK TOK STUPID DANCE/ TOOK A SAMBA CLASS I LANDED ON MY ASS/ TRYING TO WRITE A TUNE YOU BETTER HOOK ME UP TO ZOOM/ SEE MY PONCEY BOOKS TEACH MYSELF TO COOK/ WAY TOO MUCH TV IT'S LOBOTOMISING ME/THINK I'VE PUT ON WEIGHT/  ILL HAVE ANOTHER DRINK/THEN I'LL CLEAN THE KITCHEN SINK
