Thankfully Not Living In Yorkshire It Doesn't Apply

This song is by Dexys Midnight Runners and appears on the album Searching for the Young Soul Rebels (1980).

I've never seen it, but I still believe it
I'd like to dig it out, or maybe wrench it out
No touching, but there's not much involved
In casting doubt, too hard to think about

We'll be ready to move
But I'm not that stupid to put my faith in you
(Opportunity knocks)
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Ooh
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) No searching anymore
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Oh-ooh

Lord have mercy on me, keep me away from Leeds
I've been before, it's not what I'm looking for
No touching, but there's not much involved
In casting doubt, no need to think about

We'll be ready to move
But I'm not that stupid to put my faith in you
(Opportunity knocks)
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) No longer searching, searching
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) No looking anymore
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Oh-ooh

I walk around, seen the town and the crowds
All the pearls, all the blessing, panties, yellow dresses, no doubt
Funk about, work it out, piss about
Try to shout, no one's listening

It's all you and rules' hell, fools' hell
It's all you in schools they'll, tools they'll
Cut, cut

Lord have mercy on me, keep me away from Leeds
I've been before, it's not what I'm looking for
No touching, but there's not much involved
In casting doubt, no need to think about

I'd relate my thoughts to you
But I'm not so stupid to put my faith in you
(Opportunity knocks)
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Ooh
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) No longer looking anymore
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Oh-ooh

I walk around, seen the town, look around
Underground, under places, panties, yellow dresses, no doubt
Funk about, work it out, piss about
Try to shout, no one's listening

It's all you and rules' hell, fools' hell
It's all you in schools they'll, tools they'll
Cut, cut

(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) No longer searching, searching
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) No longer looking anymore
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Oh-ooh
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Oh, yes I
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Oh, no longer looking, looking, looking, looking, looking, looking
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Oh-ooh
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) No longer searching
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) No longer looking
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Somebody help me
(Ooh-ooh, ah-ah) Oh-ooh
