Life in a Northern Town by The Dream Academy always reminded me of The Four Yorkshiremen Sketch, so I finally smooshed them together and here we are.

Lyrics below the fold.

LYRICS – ‘The Four Yorkshiremen Sketch version’ of ‘Life in a Northern Town’

(Sung to ‘Life in a Northern Town’ by The Dream Academy)

Who’d a thought back when we
Would be happy with cups of tea
Without sugar or milk for me
Or tea

You were lucky you had a cracked cup
We drank from newspapers we had rolled up
We sucked on a damp cloth or mop
Ohhhh!

Ah hey oh ma ma mommy doo-din-nie-ya
Ah hey oh ma ma ma hey-y-yah

Life in a hole in t’ ground
Ah hey ma ma ma ma

We were happy because we were poor
We were happy and living indoors
A family of twenty or more
With nothin’

You were lucky you had any floors
We lived in a corridor
We lived in a hole underground
With tarpaulins
(Yeah yeah!)

Ah hey oh ma mommy doo-din-nie-ya
Ah hey oh ma ma hey-y-yah

Life in a hole in t’ ground
Hey ma ma ma ma
Ah hey oh ma ma
Ah hey oh ma ma hey-y-yah

All t’mills shut down

We’d dream of a corridor
The luxury of a floor
But we were all way too poor
And LUCKY!

We lived in a lake, it were bleak
In a brown paper bag with a leak
Working at mill all week
All week

Ah hey oh ma mommy doo-din-nie-ya
Ah hey oh ma ma hey-y-yah

Life in a hole in t’ ground
Ah hey oh ma ma ma
Ah hey oh ma mommy doo-din-nie-ya
Ah hey oh ma ma hey-y-yah

You try and tell kids now!

Ah hey oh ma mommy doo-din-nie-ya
Ah hey oh ma ma hey-y-yah

Life in a hole in t’ ground
Ah hey oh ma ma ma
Ah hey oh ma mommy doo-din-nie-ya
Ah hey oh ma ma hey-y-yah

You try and tell kids now!
