For anyone who’s ever pulled up in a Chick-fil-A drive-thru with visions of waffle fries dancing in their head, only to come to the tragic realization that it’s Sunday — a South Carolina guy who knows that pain all too well just penned a new anthem for all chicken sandwich diehards, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Comedian Shama Mrema posted a music video for his track “Chick-fil-A (But It’s Sunday)” on Facebook on Christmas Eve and, unsurprisingly, the heartfelt slow jam resonated with people. The video features a sincere Mrema creeping around outside a closed Chick-fil-A, crooning lyrics like, “Chick-fil-A sauce so good like it was made by G-O-D” as he falls to his knees and tugs on the restaurant’s door handle.

The video has now been shared more than 7,000 times, inspiring comments from fans like, “This is the song of my people.”

Chick-fil-A has yet to comment on the video on its social media channels, but hopefully they’ll at least send Mrema some coupons for free nuggets — even if he’ll only have Monday through Saturday to redeem them.
