J.Lowe/Lowelife Music 1983

Have you seen a laddie, so blithe and so bonny?
He should've been back. There is something a-fault.
He left here this morning and said these words parting:
"I'm off to join the rest in the Old Durham Waltz."

I've searched in the factory but the stands are all empty.
The belts and the machines have all ground to a halt.
Everywhere is the same. Is there nobody working?
Is everybody dancing the Old Durham Waltz?

Is he drunk? Is he sober? Are the good times all over?
I really need to know: is it true? Is it false?
You just can't believe everything people tell you.
They'll lead you a fine dance in the Old Durham Waltz.
