There was a girl I knew as a child
Her name was dandelion and I loved how she smiled
But all the kids at school they could be so cruel
And they'd ask her what is was like to be a weed

And all the lilacs and the lilies felt supreme
Because their parents could buy them very nice things
But little dandelion wore ugly clothes
Her mother could not afford to dress her daughter as a rose

Dandelion child do you know how pretty you are
Do you know how pretty you are

And little dandelion grew and grew
She learned things weren't any easier after high school
Because the world loves roses to and they called her a weed
They tried to cut her down and destroy her seed

But she said your thick green poisons can't contain me
And your fat men on lawnmowers will never erase me
I've had to be stronger then those roses you prune
It's taken all my strength just to make it through june

Dandelion child do you know how pretty you are
Do you know how pretty you are

There was a girl I used to know
And all she wanted in life was a safe place to grow
But even in the garden- kindness has been banned
Yeah the sign on the door reads weeds aren't allowed in this land
Get out, get out, no weeds aren't allowed in this land
