Baby – will you be a dandelion
And fly me back in time – to 1955
Baby – be a dandelion
Take me back to 1955
Swing me back to 1955
1955

Baby – will you be a dandelion
And fly me back in time – to 1955
Baby – be a dandelion
Take me back to 1955
Swing me back to 1955
1955

Cherry pink and apple blossom white
I’m in love with this summer
Baby, where is that Zeitgeist?
Why did we turn the rudder?
20 cents will buy – Life
Lighting sparklers are hi – tech
Before John & Paul
Who didn’t have a son or daughter
To pass the hypnosis torch on
It all went down
Chasing the Zeppelin
Into a crater in the ground
The hunt is on – for 1955
And I don’t care what anybody says
How nice simple does sound
I’d like to once again trust a handshake
I wish this wouldn’t end – an infinite day parade
There’s not a cloud in the sky
Pour me another glass of Lemonade

Baby – will you be a dandelion
And fly me back in time – to 1955
Baby – be a dandelion
Take me back to 1955
Swing me back to 1955
1955

Baby – will you be a dandelion
And fly me back in time – to 1955
Baby – be a dandelion
Take me back to 1955
Swing me back to 1955
1955

Oh I want to know
Where did I park my Plymouth
I’m walking further on down
By Chevy Bel Air sedans
Roads without guard rails – only white pickets
I see a million smiles without one line or frown
Gun powder was only for one day – the 4th of July
Not for marching dead men – led by a drummer
The Kids were glued to the yards
Not our chief export
And we were not yet importing foes
Oh I want to
Rock around the clock
With Bill Haley and His Comets
Jet back the clock
To serene simplicity
And Happy Days
Baby – tell me how the rest goes
I’m falling in love with that make-believe summer

Baby – will you be a dandelion
And fly me back in time – to 1955
Baby – be a dandelion
Take me back to 1955
Swing me back to 1955
1955

Baby – will you be a dandelion
And fly me back in time – to 1955
Baby – be a dandelion
Take me back to 1955
Swing me back to 1955
