FARE-YOU-WELL, DAISY BELL!
Copyright, 1894, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Written and Composed by Harry Dacre.
This is the sequel to "Daisy Bell," doubtless you've heard about her;
I am the lover who love d her well, and thought I could ne'er live without her;
Never imagined my "wheel for two" would make her feel offended;
When I proposed it, she said "Adieu!" And this is how it ended.
Fare-you-well, Daisy Bell, I will ride alone,
Fare-you-well, sweetheart, thus we have to part;
Say good-bye, do not cry when your lover's gone,
Now I mean to have a machine specially built for one!
There is a letter with Daisy's seal, giving an explanation,
Says she objects to a tandem wheel, because it creates a sensation;
Then she concludes in a high flown style, "I can't accept your plan, sir!
With an attempt at a careless smile, I wrote this cruel answer:- Chorus.
Now I am in for a "Breach of 'Prom'," says she will stop my sporting;
Daily I'm hearing the lawyers from, in law courts I'll have to go courting;
Certain as fate I shall lose the day, for me no chance of gaining,
Daisy has got a trump card to play, the note these words containing:- Chorus.
