Try getting this one out of your head. The fine cast of mostly senior citizens (and three youngsters) perform this re-imagined, re-worked version of the classic, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," made just for our Trumpian COVID-19 dystopia. Thank you, Roy Zimmerman and The ReZisters, and the Raging Grannies of Mendocino. You give us life!
