Dandy in the Underworld
T. Rex Lyrics


Prince of Players, Pawn of none
Born with steel reins on the heart of the Sun
Gypsy explorer of the New Jersey Heights
Exalted companion of cocaine nights **

'Cos he's a Dandy in the Underworld
Dandy in the Underworld
When will he come up for air,
Will anybody ever care *

At an old eighteen exiled he was
To the deserted kingdoms of a mythical Oz
Distraction he wanted, to destruction he fell
Now he forever stalks the ancient
Mansions of hell

* Repeat

Now his lovers have left him
And his youth's ill spent
He cries in the dungeons and tries to repent
But change is a monster and changing is hard
But he'll freeze away his summers in his
Underground yard

* Repeat
** Repeat
Repeat twice

Dandy in the Underworld
T. Rex
Produced by Marc Bolan
Album: Dandy in the Underworld

[Verse 1]
Prince of Players, pawn of none
Born with steel reins on the heart of the Sun
Gypsy explorer of the New Jersey Heights (???)
Exalted companion of cocaine nights (???)

[Chorus]
'Cos he's a Dandy in the underworld
Dandy in the underworld
When will he come up for air?
Will anybody ever care?

[Verse 2]
At an old eighteen 👽 exiled he was
To the deserted kingdoms of a mythical Oz
Distraction he wanted, to destruction he fell
Now he forever stalks the ancient mansions of hell

[Chorus]
'Cos he's a Dandy in the underworld
Dandy in the underworld
When will he come up for air?
Oh will anybody ever care?

[Scat-singing Bridge]
Shut up and shooby doo ... ahhh

[Chorus]
'Cos he's a Dandy in the underworld
Dandy in the underworld
When will he come up for air?
Oh will anybody ever care?

[Verse 3]
Now his lovers have left him
And his youth's ill spent
He cries in the dungeons and tries to repent
But change is a monster and changing is hard
So he'll freeze away his summers in his underground yard

[Chorus]
'Cos he's a Dandy in the underworld
Dandy in the underworld
When will he come up for air?
Oh will anybody ever care?

[Verse 1]
Prince of Players, pawn of none
Born with steel reins on the heart of the Sun
Gypsy explorer of the New Jersey Heights (???)
Exalted companion of cocaine nights (???)

[Chorus]
'Cos he's a Dandy in the underworld
Dandy in the underworld
When will he come up for air?
Oh will anybody ever care?
'Cos he's a Dandy in the underworld
Dandy in the underworld
When will he come up for air?
Oh will anybody ever care?
'Cos he's a Dandy in the underworld
Dandy in the underworld
When will he come up for air?
Oh will anybody ever care?
'Cos he's a Dandy in the underworld
Dandy in the underworld
When will he come up for air?
Oh will anybody ever care?

"Still rains on the heart of the Sun"; as long as that's true I'm okay.

Can you please re-upload Prince of Players (The Alternative Dandy in the Underworld) if possible since it's been taken down on your channel. Thanks.

Edward Vaughn

This song alone shows Marc's return as a musical force. Truth in song. Miss him.

Crimson Moon, Visions of Domino, Jason B Sad and the mighty Pain and Love are all musically and lyrically top notch Bolan too. Celebrate Summer rocks too.

Marty Williams

How can anyone be so dandy?
