Newman initially released “Stay Away” at the beginning of April, promoting some best practices for navigating the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“People are saying it’s the greatest song ever written or that they’ve heard,” said the 76-year-old Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer at the beginning of the segment. “A lot of people are saying it. I’m not—it’s they who are saying it,” he continued before launching into the tune.

Sitting alone at the piano, Newman began the topical and humorous song. Lines like “Stay away from me/baby, keep your distance, please/stay away from me/words of love in times like these,” highlight the importance of social distancing, while lyrics like “We’ll drive that car/so fast and so far/all your stupid friends will be far away” add a bit of levity to the serious situation the world faces.

Newman then closed with an important message: “Stay away, wash your hands, don’t touch your face. Don’t touch mine, either.” Watch his performance on Wednesday’s episode of Colbert below.
