A music hall song, the chorus of which is as well known as the verses are forgotten.

Lyrics: Harry Dacre

There is a flower within my heart,
Daisy, Daisy,
Planted one day by a glancing dart.
Planted by Daisy Bell!
Whether she loves me or loves me not
Sometimes it's hard to tell,
Yet I am longing to share the loy
Of Beautiful Daisy Bell.
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do!
I'm half crazy, all for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage,
But you'll look sweet on the seat
Of a bicycle made for two.


We will go "tandem" as man and wife.
Daisy, Daisy,
"Pedd'ling" away down the road of life.
I and my Daisy Bell.
When the road's dark we can both despise
P'licemen, and lamps as well;
There are "bright lights" in the dazzling eyes
Of beautiful Daisy Bell.
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do!
I'm half crazy, all for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage,
But you'll look sweet on the seat
Of a bicycle made for two.


I will stand by you in "wheel" or woe,
Daisy, Daisy,
You'll be the "belle" which I ring, you know,
Sweet little Daisy Bell.
You'll take the "lead" in each "trip" we take,
Then if I don't do well,
I will permit you to use the break,
My beautiful Daisy Bell.
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do!
I'm half crazy, all for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage,
But you'll look sweet on the seat
Of a bicycle made for two.
