about

'30 More Days' is an alternative Christmas song (in the form of an epic folk horror chanson) exploring the Tudor custom "The Lord of Misrule", wherein a peasant would be appointed to lead hedonistic revelries for thirty days over the Christmas period.

lyrics

Here I am Lord of Misrule
Abbot of Unreason
The People’s Fool
Appointed by lot this Christmastide
Take a walk through Guernica with me as your guide

I know what you’re thinking about
Here goes
For thirty full days I will now reign
Give thanks to your king

Here I am Lord of Misrule
Abbot of Unreason
The People’s Fool
Appointed by lot this Christmastide
Take a walk with me
Take my hand as your guide

I wave my hankies gaily
I jingle my bells daily
Now watch me drink the Bishop Boy
underneath the table

See me kiss the minister
Scare the royal babes
Hiding razor blades in their mayonnaise

I know what you’re thinking about
Here goes
For thirty full days I will now reign
Give thanks to your king

Hey now, you’re not getting out
Locked down
For these thirty days
I command you behave
in unscrupulous ways

Now they’ll never know what the snow is hiding
Now they’ll never know what the snow is hiding

Give me thirty more days
Give me thirty more days
