Northern Soul.


How I love Northern soul

Now I’ve got the bug

It’s more than music for me

It’s part of my history

And in my blood


Happy music to often sad lyrics

Of love and romance

Always a great beat and rhyme

That wants to make you dance


Dance halls full of lovely people

Out for a good time

The atmosphere electric

And sublime


Soul boys and soul girls

Now mostly getting on in life

Reminiscing about Alldayers and Allnighters

And the wonderful records that they had


Vinyl on the turntables

Talcum powder on the floor

Spins and backflips

I can’t do any more

Although spirit willing

My polyvelds too tight

And feet are getting sore

I’d wear my baggy trousers with twenty pockets

But they don’t fit any more


Music like ours will never die

As long as it remains in our hearts

While our bodies may fall apart


Above all

Keep the faith.
