​Dandelin Child

This song is by Shannon Murray and appears on the album Shannon Murray (2002).

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
