Manger

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Frontman Craig Nicholls told jmag (July 2008): "It's like with all the songs - not really going for anything. This song's quite literal and it's easy to understand the vibe. It's just being immature, but maybe, um, supreme."
Nicholls explained the first verse to jmag, which goes: "Burning down the manger / My Lord is a stranger / The Beatles are bigger than Jesus." He said: "That's just saying that the Beatles mean more to me than religion does. Maybe it does to other kids as well and we can spread that message."
