There is a flow-er with-in my heart, Dai-sy, Dai-sy!
Plant-ed one day by a glanc-ing dart,
Plant-ed by Dai-sy Bell!
Wheth-er she loves me or loves me not,
Some-times it's hard to tell;
Yet I am long-ing to share the lot
Of beau-ti-ful Dai-sy Bell!
Dai-sy, Dai-sy, Give me your an swer, do!
I'm half cra zy, All for the love of you!
It won't be a styl ish mar- riage,
I can't af- ford a car-riage,
But you'll look sweet On the seat
Of a bi- cy- cle built for two.
We will go "tan-dem" as man and wife, Dai-sy, Dai-sy!
"Ped'-ling" a-way down the road of life,
I and my Dai-sy Bell!
When the road's dark we can both des-pise
P'lice-men and "lamps" as well;
There are "bright lights" in the daz-zling eyes
Of beau-ti-ful Dai-sey Bell!
I will stand by you in "wheel" or woe, Dai-sy, Dai-sy!
You'll be the bell(e) which I'll ring, you know!
Sweet lit-tle Dai-sy Bell!
You'll take the "lead" in each "trip" we take,
Then, if I don't do well;
I will per-mit you to use the brake,
My beau-ti-ful Dai-sy Bell!
