Handy Dandy 1

Bob Dylan © 1990 Special Rider Music

(Official lyrics @ www.bobdylan.com)


6 Jan 1990
cd imgUNDER THE RED SKY

  Under the Red Sky session 1, Los Angeles - 6.jan.1990  

Handy Dandy, controversy surrounds him
He been around the world an' back again
Something in the moonlight still hounds him
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy.

Handy Dandy, if every bone in his body was broken he would never admit it
He got an all girl orchestra an' when he says
"Strike up the band,'' they hit it
Handy Dandy, Handy Dandy.

You say, "What are you made of?''
He says, "Can you repeat what you say?''
You'll say, "What are you afraid of?''
He'll say, "Nothin! neither live or dead.''

Handy Dandy, he got a stick in his hand an' a pocket full of money
He says, "Darling, tell me the truth, how much time i got?''
She says, "You got all the time in the world, honey.''
Handy Dandy, Handy Dandy.

He's got that clear crystal fountain
He's got that soft silky skin
He's got that fortress on the mountain
With no doors, no windows, no thieves can break in.

Handy Dandy, sitting with a girl named Nancy in a garden feelin' kind of lazy
He says, "Ya want a gun? I'll give ya one." 
She says, "Boy, you t--talkin' crazy''
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy
Handy Dandy, pour another brandy.

Handy Dandy, he got a basket of flowers an' a bag full of sorrow
He finishes his drink, he gets up from the table, he says,
"Okay, boys, i'll see you tomorrow.''
Handy Dandy, Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy.  up

6 Jan 1990
cd imgGENUINE BOOTLEG SERIES Vol. 3 The Third One Now (T-636)

  Under the Red Sky session 1, Los Angeles - 6.jan.1990   

Handy Dandy, controversy surrounds him
He been around the world an' back again
Something in the moonlight still hounds him.
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy.

Handy Dandy, if every bone in his body was a-broken he would never admit it
He got an all girl orchestra an' when he says
"Strike up the band,'' they hit it.
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy.

You'll say, "What is he made of?''
An' he'll say, "Can you repeat what you said?''
You'll say, "What is he afraid of?''
He'll say, "Nothin' neither live nor dead.''

Handy Dandy, he got a stick in his hand an' a pocket full of money
He'll say, "Oh darling, tell me the truth, how much time i got?''
She'll say, "You got all the time in the world, honey.''
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy.

He got that clear crystal fountain
He got soft silky skin
He got a fortress on top of the mountain
And no doors, no windows, so no thieves can break in.

Handy Dandy, sitting with a girl named Nancy in a garden feelin' kind of lazy
He says, "Ah, you want a gun? I'll give ya one." 
She says, "Boy, you ta-talkin' crazy''
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy
Handy Dandy, just like sugar an' candy.

Oh, Handy Dandy, pour another brandy.

Handy Dandy, he got a basket of flowers an' a bag full of sorrow
He finishes his drink, he gets up from the table, he said,
"Okay, boys, i'll see you tomorrow.''
Handy Dandy, just like, just like, just like sugar an' candy
Handy Dandy...  up
