Life In A Northern Town

Dream Academy


A Salvation Army Band played
And 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
Ah-

(Chant)
Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in a northern town

They sat on the stoney ground
And he took out 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.

(Chant)
Ah- hey ma ma ma
Life in a northern town
Ah hey ma ma ma
All the work shut down

The evening had turned to rain
Watch the water roll 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 eyes
As the train pulled out of sight
Bye-bye

(Chant)
Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in a northern town
Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in a northern town
