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.
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'lng" away down the road of life, I and my Daisy Bell!
When the road's dark we can both despise policemen and "lamps" as well;
There are "bright lights" in the dazzling eyes of beautiful Daisy Bell.- Chorus.
I will stand 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 brake, my beautiful Daisy Bell.- Chorus.
