Prince or pauper, beggar man or king
Play the game with every blow you bring

Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion

One o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock, four o'clock,  five
Dandelions don't care about the time

Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion

Blow away dandelion

Though you're older now, it's just the same
You can play the dandelion game
When you're finished with your childlike prayers
Well you know you should wear it

Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor's life
Rich man, poor man, beautiful daughters, wives

Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion

Blow away dandelion

Little girls and boys come out to play - yes
Bring your dandelions to blow away

Dandelion don't tell no lies
Dandelion will make you wise
Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away dandelion

Blow away dandelion
Blow away dandelion
Blow away dandelion
Blow away dandelion
