Jesus Buys Me Cigarettes

A wistful uke song about being a teenager and hanging out with the Son of God.

Hard to pin down my favourite moment of grubby nostalgia here, but rhyming "mix cassettes" and "cigarettes" is definitely a contender, as is the all-night garage run.

I'm picturing you and Jesus riding on a tandem bike together. It a sunny afternoon. You reach for the box of smokes and discover it's empty. Without missing a beat Jesus touches the box and it's magically refilled with cigarettes! Oh, and you're biking across the top of a lake.

Fun song.

That was surprisingly fun. The introduction didn't do so much for me, but by the time you hit the chorus I was sucked in.

Another very refreshing and very English little belter. Listeners from North America may find the reference to "fags" a trifle unsettling. English slang for "cigarettes". Obviously, I suppose.

Well, I did briefly consider calling it 'God Loves Fags' but felt that might be a pun too far.
