about

Andrew wrote this song in Burket, Indiana after seeing dandelions and dust in the air.

lyrics

The dandelions and dust are a- floating through the air
I’m all alone, you don’t even care
So I’m gone, oh mama I’m gone

You’re coming down the stair in your flip-flop-dee-floobies
I’m walking out the door singing shoo-be-doo-be
‘Cause I’m gone, oh mama I’m gone

Yodel-a-hee, yodel-a-hee
Yodel-a-hee, yodel-a-hee
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I’m taking your spaghetti sauce and throwing it on the floor
I’m gonna skateboard right through it, break the lightswitch at your door
And be gone, oh mama I’m gone

I’ll put a firecracker underneath your pillowcase
Stick a bottle rocket up your butt, a roman candle in your face
And be gone, oh baby I’m gone

Yodel-a-hee, yodel-a-hee
Yodel-a-hee, yodel-a-hee
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Well I know you hate me like a dentist hate pop
Like a toe hates a jam, like a nose hates snot
Like dandelions and dust hate getting caught
When they’re floating through the air up by some treetop
So I’m gone, oh baby I’m gone
