Daisy Bell or a Bicycle Made for Two
(Written and Composed by 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 lot
Of beautiful Daisy Bell

cho: 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 built for two

We will go "tandem" as man and wife
Daisy, Daisy
"Ped'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

I will stick by you in "wheel" or woe
Daisy, Daisy
You'll be the bell(e) which I'll 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

Sung by Miss Katie Lawrence
