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, oh

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

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 eyes
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
(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma....)
(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma, hey-oh)
All of the work shut down
(Hey-oh, ma-ma-ma)
