American Old Time Song Lyrics: 09 Pretty As A Daisy
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 9
PRETTY AS A DAISY.
Written and sung by Bobby Newcomb.
Oh. you've heard me sing of love and fancies,
And speak of the belles and beaux;
But once I oft exchanged fond glances
With a fairy no one knows;
Her face is bright as Summer,
Her smile like the rippling stream;
I tell you she's a stunner,
Yes, the fairest that ever was seen.
Oh, she's pretty and sweet as a daisy,
That grows in the field so near;
With love she's set me almost crazy,
I tell you she's a dear.-(Dance).
Oh, we met by chance as I was strolling,
Along the crowded street,
And my eyes at once betrayed affection,
She returned a smile so sweet;
I handed her a message,
Which said: " Will you love me and be mine?"
When she nodded back coquetish,
And replied: It is for you to name the time.
Oh, she's pretty And sweet as a daisy, &c.
I'm feeling just as gay and happy
As a prince with his mme of gold;
I did meet my charmer on an evening,
And a tale of love unfold;
One day she asked my income,
I told her I was clerk in a store,
When she quickly turned the corner,
And I never saw her my darling more.
Oh, she's pretty and sweet as a daisy, &c.
