Adam Sandler has dedicated a new song to all the doctors and nurses working to care for people affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The same man that gave us the 'Hanukkah Song', has created a new masterpiece, creatively titled 'Coronavirus Song', especially for all those fighting Covid-19 by helping to treat people who have contracted the deadly infection.
He debuted his new tune on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, giving us a much-needed dose of classic Sandler - a combo of humour and moving sincerity, showing his gratitude for frontline workers, while also making clear he's 'really, really sick' of his family.
Wearing some mirrored shades - which the 53-year-old explained he had on 'so you can't see me peeking at my notes so much' - and a red cap, he belted out the lyrics to his number.
He sang: "Doctors and nurses will save us from this mess if we get them the supplies that they need - and I hope they save us soon because I'm really, really sick of my family."
Playing his electric guitar at the same time, he continued: "Doctors brought us into this world as babies, and doctors take good care of your grandma... Nurses slap you around 'til they find a good vein, they wear Crocs - and they tell you the TRUTH!"
Touching on some home truths, which the government will hopefully take note of, he went on: "We've got to build some more ventilators and make some more masks. We've got to do it now, so let's all come together. I'm teaching math to my kids, and that can't be good for America.
"Stay home as much as you can, be sure to wash your hands, let's make this damn thing go away. We love you, doctors and nurses; you're saving lives every day. Find a cure for this s*** 'cause I really, really miss hugging my mailman."
Sandler introduced the new song, saying: "Hey, Jimmy, I love you. Keep doing the good stuff you're doing for us."
Fallon, as many celebrities are doing, has used his influence for good during the pandemic, and has been a loud supporter of first responders over recent weeks.
He appeared on a video, alongside the likes of Ron Howard and Robert De Niro, asking Americans to step outside and show their support for medics and each other in the 'Cowbell Challenge' - much like we've seen in countries around the world.
Fallon summed the message up with a simple line, adding: "You guys are truly heroes."
