The East has that Englishmen
And the rising sun
The West has the open plains
And how they were won

On Independence Day
For all it's worth
You can ring those southern belles
I'm going North

Up were the rushing rivers run and salmon leap
I could even get there in my sleep
Give me the ice and snow
Time to go North

So run up a banner
And we'll stand underneath
You gave me a starry flag
For one with a leaf
I'm on the borderline

I jump back and forth
There's nothing to stop me now
I'm heading North

Up where the polar bears
And moose and geese will play
And some of them address you en francais
Give me the ice and snow
Time to go North

And so I must leave you all
Alas and alack
And though we are parting now
I'll always come back

So as the compass points
That's where I'll be
But if you could only see
The perfection of

North, it's something
I will always carry in my heart
A place when dreams begin
And life can start
Who cares what people know?
Let me go North

Mac Manus Declan Patrick
