Trying to create more diversions for the homebound (s/b all of us). This time, change, replace, add, or subtract one word from a song title (preferably a well-known one) to create a title that is apropos to the current situation. Extra marks for extra cleverness.

Two I found online by the Fab Four:

I Don't Want to Hold Your Hand (thread title)
and
Glove Me Do

    Fever
    You give me fever when you kiss me
    Fever when you hold me tight
    Fever in the mornin'
    Fever all through the night.

    God bless Peggy Lee!

    "Hello, Goodbye" needs no alteration.

    "Day Tripper" looks wrong, but is written about something that you did indoors.
