‘Inspired’ by the haze, Adrian Lee rasps away the blues with a spoof (below) of the popular song (above) while gasping for breath.

I can’t see clearly now the haze has come
I can’t see no obstacles in my way
Gone are the bright sunrays that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: don’t bluff!) sun shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: don’t lie!) sun shiny day

Oh yes, I can skip school now…A-P-I
All of the good fresh air has disappeared
Where is that rain that I’ve been praying for
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: don’t bluff!) sun shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: don’t lie!) sun shiny day

Look all around, just know that your eyes hurt
Look straight ahead, there’s just no more blue skies

I can’t breathe clearly now the haze has come
I can’t breathe those particles in the air
Here is that mask that you’ve been searching for
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: don’t bluff!) sun shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: yeah lie!) sun shiny day

Oh yes, we will stay indoors the rain is none
Ash falls from open burnings, they’ve reappeared
Where is that M-O-U we’re waiting for
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: don’t bluff!) sun shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: yeah lie!) sun shiny day

Soot all around, yes know that your throat hurts
Smog’s here again, there’s just some more hotspots

I can’t see clearly now the haze has come
I can’t breathe dust particles in the air
Done is the cloud-seeding that brought no rain
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: don’t bluff!) sun shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (echo: yeah right!) bright (echo: yeah lie!) sun shiny day
