Daisy Bell (or "Bicycle Built for Two")

1There is a flower within my heart
2Daisy, Daisy
3Planted one day by a glancing dart
4Planted by Daisy Bell
5Whether she loves me or loves me not
6Sometimes it's hard to tell
7Yet I am longing to share the lot
8Of beautiful Daisy Bell
9Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
10I'm half crazy all for the love of you
11It won't be a stylish marriage
12I can't afford a carriage
13But you'll look sweet upon the seat
14Of a bicycle built for two
15We will go 'tandem' as man and wife
16Daisy, Daisy
17Ped'ling away down the road of life
18I and my Daisy Bell
19When the road's dark, we can both despise
20Policemen and lamps as well
21There are bright lights in the dazzling eyes
22Of beautiful Daisy Bell
23Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
24I'm half crazy all for the love of you
25It won't be a stylish marriage
26I can't afford a carriage
27But you'll look sweet upon the seat
28Of a bicycle built for two
29I will stand by you in "wheel" or woe
30Daisy, Daisy
31You'll be the bell(e) which I'll ring you know
32Sweet little Daisy Bell
33You'll take the lead in each trip we take
34Then if I don't do well
35I will permit you to use the brake
36My beautiful Daisy Bell
37Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
38I'm half crazy all for the love of you
39It won't be a stylish marriage
40I can't afford a carriage
41But you'll look sweet upon the seat
42Of a bicycle built for two
