Hi Bora,

Having just listened to the song I can see why people might be surprised by the lyrics of the song.

I don't know who the singer is but took them to be, 'tongue in cheek' and nevertheless interesting from a grammatical point of view, a nice mix of tenses.

Thank you for your contribution!

À mon avis, elle utilise beaucoup de sarcasme ! Elle espère qu'on peut faire mieux après le confinement. Je l'espère aussi !

I agree with Paul that she seems to be using sarcasm throughout the song. Perhaps she's indicating that this confinement is a blessing in disguise, where we're forced to do all the right things.
