Life in a Northern Town Lyrics – Dream Academy

The Salvation Army band played.
And the children drunk lemonade.
And the morning lasted all day, all day.

And through an open window came,
Like Sinatra in a younger day.
Pushing the town away…

(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma….)
(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma, hey-oh)
Life in a northern town
All of the work shut down
(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma)

He sat on the stony ground.
And he took a cigarette out.
And everyone else came down to listen.

He said in Winter 1963
It felt like the world would freeze,
With John F. Kennedy and the Beatles.

(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma….)
(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma, hey-oh)
Life in a northern town
All of the work shut down
(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma)

As the evening turned to rain
Watch the water run down the drain
As we followed him down to the station.

And though he never would wave goodbye
You could see it written in his eye,
As the train rolled out of sight, bye bye…

(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma….)
(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma, hey-oh)
Life in a northern town
All of the work shut down
(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma)
