A BORED mum has created a hilarious parody to Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive during the coronavirus lockdown.
Mummy blogger Victoria Emes has replaced the words in the 70s anthem with lyrics that perfectly capture the struggle of self-isolating with a family.

Victoria can be seen dressed in a metallic leotard as she begins with the lyrics, “at first I was afraid I was petrified, kept thinking how I’d ever live without the world outside.
“But then I spent so many nights scoffing crisps and necking wine, I know it’s time to say we’re gonna be just fine.”
She then moves on to verses about wishing she had stockpiled more before threatening to “smash” her husband’s face, and throw her homeschool schedule in the bin.
Sharing the video on YouTube, Victoria wrote: “This goes out to all the sl**s in isolation wondering how the f*** you’re going to live through an indefinite number of months stuck indoors with your d***head family.
“You are not alone. Not going to lie, it’s going to be tough because let’s face it – partners can be utter p***s and kids, well, they’re the biggest w*****s of them all.
“But babes, we can f***ing do this. My advice – employ every coping strategy you can think of; dancing, cooking, singing, laughing, meditation, wanking (personal fave), hiding in a cupboard for five minutes of peace – whatever the f*** you need to do to just SURVIVE THIS UTTER MADNESS.
“We'll get there girls… one gin/wine/crisp/chocolate biscuit/tear saturated day at a time.”
The hilarious and very relatable video has unsurprisingly proven a hit among other struggling mums, having received over 27,000 views.
I Will Survive Isolation lyrics in full
At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking how I’d ever live without the world outside
But then I spent so many nights scoffing crisps and necking wine
I know it’s time to say we’re gonna be just fine
And so we’re here stuck in this room
I don’t know when we’re getting out
But no better place to face the doom
I should have bought that bag of rice
I should have stockpiled more bogroll
If I’d known for just one second I’d have such a messy hole
But I’ve got snacks, plenty of gin
Their homeschool schedule can go straight in the f***ing bin
I wanna smash my husband’s face
I wanna wave my kids goodbye
But I won’t crumble
I won’t lay down and die
Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh so long as I have internet I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all this time to fill while trying to not get ill
But I’ll survive, I will survive
Commenting on the video, one wrote: “You made my day so much brighter. THANK YOU.”
“I can’t stop laughing! The best thing online for last2 weeks” agreed another.
And a third wrote: “Maybe it's too much isolation, but that leotard/jiggling has given me the downstairs collywobbles.”
