Lyrics

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 Ah hey ma ma ma Life in a northern town. They sat on the stoney 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." 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 Ah hey ma ma ma Life in a northern town. Ah hey ma ma ma Life in a northern town.
