Jose Mari Chan’s pandemic version of ‘Can We Just Stop and Talk Awhile’

Fancy meeting you in my internet
Couldn’t help but notice your smile
While everybody else around us is surfing about

And share places that we’ve never seen
Get away from these gray and boring

Can we just stop and chat awhile
Get to know each other
I really love your smile

Can we just stop and chat awhile
Get to know each other
I really love your smile
