Handy Dandy Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

Handy Dandy, controversy surrounds him
He been around the world and back again
Something in the moonlight still hounds him

Handy Dandy, just like sugar and candy

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

Handy Dandy
Handy Dandy

You say, "What are ya made of?"
He says, "Can you repeat what you said?"
You'll say, "What are you afraid of?"
He'll say, "Nothin' neither live nor dead"

Handy Dandy, he got a stick in his hand
And 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, so 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 you one"
She says, "Boy, you talking crazy"

Handy Dandy, just like sugar and candy
Handy Dandy, pour him another brandy

Handy Dandy, he got a basket of flowers
And a bag full or 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 and candy
Handy Dandy, just like sugar and candy
