North East songs

Discussion in 'SMB' started by HellsBells, Nov 17, 2017.

  1. The kids are getting to an age when they like nursery rhymes and songs sung to them.

    I'd like to sing them some proper Northern songs so they know their heritage and the accent before they go to school and start talking like Spurs fans.

    I've got the lyrics to When the Boat Comes in off wiki, but there seem to be two versions - what's the consensus, wise SMB?

    And any other other good Northern songs should I sign to them?

    Not ‘Northern’ songs specifically but Rant by The Futureheads is a good shout in terms of the accent.

    He also used to sing:

    All of a sudden, a big black pudding
    Came flying through the air.
    Missed me Ma, hit me Dad
    Knocked him ower the chair

    Not sure if that is purely North Eastern as there seems to be various variations on the type of puddings and relatives though :D
