Only A Northern Song


If you're listening to this song 
You may think the chords are going wrong 
But they're not; we just wrote it like that 
When you're listening late at night 
You may think the bands are not quite right 
But they are, they just play it like that 
It doesn't really matter what chords I play 
What words I say or what time of day it is 
As it's only a Northern song 
It doesn't really matter what clothes I wear 
Or how I fare or if my hair is brown 
When it's only a Northern song. 
If you think the harmony 
Is a little dark and out of key 
You're correct, there's nobody there. 
And I told you there's no one there.
