Prince or pauper, beggar man or thing Play the game with ev'ry flower 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 chimes 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
Tho' you're older now its just the same You can play this dandelion game When you're finished with your childlike prayers Well, you know you should wear it
Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailors lives 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 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

Eli from PhiladelphiaIt is possible John Lennon and Paul McCartney sang background vocals on this song. But unfortunately, this has never been proven. It is a known fact however, that they did sing backup on this song's flipside, "We Love You".
Sunshine from Oklahoma City, OkKeith Richards named his daughter Dandelion but it was his mother not Anita who changed her name to Angela.

Tyler from Orange County, CaThere's a great demo/bootleg recording of Dandelion that's entirely acoustic with just Keef on vocals. The melody is much stronger.
Perttu from Jyväskylä, FinlandBy the way, Brian Jones plays incredibly beautiful oboe and saxophone melodies on this song.
Perttu from Jyväskylä, FinlandI think "Dandelion" may be secret code, as it is a weed plant, the song sounds like they were high, when composing it. I really like Stones of that era '65-'69 and some of their later stuff.
Mike from Germantown, MdWhere can I get a recording of this online?
Derek from Anahiem, CaI love this song. Very melodic.
There is a skeletal version of Dandelion with Keith sounding out a vocal.
