Viral Hit
Eric Clapton and Van Morrison Release Their Anti-Mask Anthem
Talk about an infectious tune!
By Jordan Hoffman
December 20, 2020


Eric Clapton and Van Morrison, both age 75 and therefore at 220 times the risk of death from COVID-19 compared to people 18 to 29, have released a blues-rock track raging against public health codes.

"Stand and Deliver," written by Morrison and sung by Clapton, includes couplets like "Do you wanna be a free man / Or do you wanna be a slave? / Do you wanna wear these chains / Until you're lying in the grave?"

It continues "Magna Carta, Bill of Rights/The constitution, what's it worth?/You know they're gonna grind us down/Until it really hurts/Is this a sovereign nation/Or just a police state?/You better look out, people/Before it gets too late."


The phrase "stand and deliver" is associated with highwaymen, suggesting that Morrison and Clapton feel that governments scrambling to keep their populations alive are somehow stealing from them. The track concludes with the line "Dick Turpin wore a mask too." Turpin was an 18th century British criminal known for highway robbery.

6. He's apparently made some

pretty racist statements about people of color needing to leave Britain (1970's)
