Sweet Caroline… Ba Ba Ba!

Neil Diamond has decided to make a few changes to the lyrics of his global hit ‘Sweet Caroline’.

We all know the lyrics of the song talk about touching each other, but that isn’t going to fly in today’s society where we have to practice social distancing.

So instead of "Hands, touching hands," it goes, "Hands, washing hands."

And the lyric "Touchin' Me, Touchin' You" ... well, it's now adjusted to "Don't touch me, I won't touch you."

Watch it above.
