Liner Notes: 

It's a beautiful August bank holiday weekend in the UK, the sun is shining and temperatures are soaring. What better time to start work on this year's Goddammit Jeremiah Christmas release?

I think you'll agree that this song raises an important question that hasn't received enough consideration before now.

Just a rough and ready acoustic demo, because I can't be arsed with programming drums and stuff today.

Lyrics: 

What if Santa Claus is just 20 ferrets in a red suit?
What if Santa Claus is just 20 ferrets in a red suit?

How do we know what's going on behind that facial hair?
Can we be certain there's a human being under there?
And what if all of this is just a ruse to keep us quiet?
Because they know that if we found out there might be a riot?

I think we're on to something
I think we're on to something here

What if Santa Claus is just 20 ferrets in a red suit?
What if Santa Claus is just 20 ferrets in a red suit?

Isn't it suspicious that he only travels late at night?
And no-one ever gets a good look at him in the light?
He wears a big, old coat and never, ever takes it off
The perfect cover for a legion of small animals

I think we're on to something
We're really on to something here

What if Santa Claus...
What if Santa Claus...

What if Santa Claus is just 20 ferrets in a red suit?
What if Santa Claus is just 20 ferrets in a red suit?
What if Santa Claus is just 20 ferrets in a red suit?
What if Santa Claus is just 20 ferrets, pranking me and you?



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

so well thought out and written. the melodies are perfect and the arrangement as spritely as a dozen reindeer. tur of phrase and melodic lift.. definitely one of the more relevant what if songs

Bring on the quirky catchy Christmas hits!!!!! Delightfully campy and contagious! I can’t help but imagine the stench of 20 ferrets in a wooly Santa Suit or - another thought - is that what is squirming when I sit on Santa’s lap?
