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?

Surely I'm not the only one that has a bit of a mince pie problem...

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

Lyrics: 

I killed a man in Bexleyheath
Self-defence against a thief
Who tried to steal my bag and run away
I put my life upon the line
For Mr. Kipling's deep-filled pies
The papers called me "reckless" and "insane"

But they don't understand
They don't understand

Mince pies!
Haunt me in my dreams
Mince pies!
Will be the death of me
Mince pies!
Help me, I have got to break these chains
Mince pies!
Worse than crack cocaine
Mince pies!
Here I go again
Mince pies!
Help me, I'm too weak to walk away

Friday, I ate 28
Saturday Ocado came
All the boxes filled up my front room
Sunday I went for a run
To justify the 51
That I consumed before the day was through

You gotta understand
Oh, please understand

Mince pies!
Haunt me in my dreams
Mince pies!
Will be the death of me
Mince pies!
Help me, I have got to break these chains
Mince pies!
Worse than crack cocaine
Mince pies!
Here I go again
Mince pies!
Help me, I'm too weak to walk away

Mince pies!
Mince pies!



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

Okay, I need this album! Not sure I would like mince pies but I totally love this ridiculously fun song! I have no doubt I’ll be doing something random in public tomorrow - shopping in the store, walking down the street, using a public restroom and I will spontaneously sing out “Mince Pies”.

You have a talent to create complex yet singable melodies with very funny lyrics, again why re you not a hit?

the music is so solid and exciting that it would be a hit even without the humorous lyric,
