T. Rex – Dandy In The Underworld lyrics

Marc Bolan- guitar and vocal
Herbie Flowers- bass
Tony Newman- drums
Dino Dines-keyboards and synthesizer
Steve Harley- vocals
A Bolanic revision of Orpheus Descending
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 **
Cause 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 I'll 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
