Dear Prudence

Dear Prudence” is a Dear Prudence track, released in 1983 by Siouxsie and the Banshees.


Song by composers Lennon and McCartney, "Dear Prudence" was written during the Beatles' trip to India in 1968 to practice meditation. It was released that same year on the band's well-known "white album". The sister of actress Mia Farrow, Prudence Farrow (who was also in the eastern country), was the inspiration of the song. Lennon and George Harrison tried to persuade Prudence to leave the room, while she was obsessed with transcendental meditation.

Siouxsie and the Banshees re-recorded "Dear Prudence" and released it as a single in 1983, becoming one of the band's biggest hits. The post-punk band's version reached number 3 on the UK singles chart.


Lyrics

Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful, and so are you
Dear Prudence, won't you come out and play

Dear Prudence, open up your eyes
Dear Prudence, see the sunny skies
The wind is low, the birds will sing
That you are part of everything
Dear Prudence, won't you open up your eyes?

Look around
Look around
Look around
Look around

Dear Prudence, let me see you smile
Dear Prudence, like a little child
The clouds will be a daisy chain
So let me see you smile again
Dear Prudence, won't you let me see you smile?

Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful, and so are you
Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play

Look around round round round round
Look around round round round round
Look around round round round round
Oh, look around, look around

Look around round round round round
Look around round round round round
Look around around
Oh, Look around around

Look around round round round round
Look around round round round round
