I am looking for the lyrics to a sweet song by Bob Stuart from Maine. It has a chorus that says:

Dandelion. Dandelion, Dandelion with gold hair..
Dandelion, Dandelion such a dandy lyin' there.. or something to that effect. I know there are some of you who know this one..help!

Bernie,

Thanks for that! I did sing the chorus and the one verse I knew this afternoon. It's a good song for kids and makes the point that one person's weed is another's flower.

Peace,

Kathleen

Bob has lived in Rockland, Maine for several years. The song is "Dandylion" and the lyrics are as followed, according to the album notes for Bob's "Rainbows End" LP. I'm sure the format will need tweaking, Joe-clones. Thanks in advance!

**************************************

Dandylion

When the sun, it shines so bright,
The dandylion opens wide.
When my son sleeps at night,
The dandylions all close tight.

Chorus:
    Dandylion, dandylion, dandylion,
    With golden hair.
    Dandylion, dandylion.
    Such a dandy lying there.

Some folks are sad and so forlorn
To see a dandylion in their lawn.
But that star of gold in that sea of green
Is the prettiest sight I've ever seen.

When you're walking in bare feet,
And the green grass tickles and it feels so neat,
Keep those dandylions in sight,
For a dandylion is a bee's delight.

When a dandylion's hair turns grey,
The wind it will com and blow it away.
But don't be sad, oh don't despair,
For soon there will be dandylions everywhere.

Bob Stuart, "Rainbows End"
c.1983 Bonnie Banks Records

Thiscwas one of my favorite songs. Used to teach it to my preschoolers. Had it on a tape that has since been lost. Is there a recorded version anywhere?
