Music and Lyrics by Harry Dacre

VERSE 1

G                     D7 
There is a flower within my heart,

       G 
Daisy, Daisy!

                     D7 
Planted one day by a glancing dart,

G          D7    G 
Planted by Daisy Bell!

Em          B7          Em 
Whether she loves me or loves me not,

D7                     G 
Sometimes it's hard to tell;

Em       B7         Em 
Yet I am longing to share the lot

   A7              D    D7 
Of beautiful Daisy Bell!___

CHORUS

G 
Daisy, Daisy,

C                    G 
Give me your answer, do!

D7       G  Em 
I'm half crazy,

A7                  D 
All for the love of you!

                      G 
It won't be a stylish marriage

  Em      C      G         D7 
I can't afford a carriage,____

    G           D7 
But you'll look sweet

G      D7 
On the seat

     G       D7        G 
Of a bicycle built for two!

VERSE 2

G                      D7 
We will go "tandem" as man and wife,

       G 
Daisy, Daisy!

                         D7 
"Ped'ling" away down the road of life,

G        D7    G 
I and my Daisy Bell!

Em              B7          Em 
When the road's dark we can both despise

D7                       G 
P'licemen and "lamps" as well;

Em                B7             Em 
There are "bright lights" in the dazzling eyes

   A7              D     D7 
Of beautiful Daisy Bell!___

CHORUS

G 
Daisy, Daisy,

C                    G 
Give me your answer, do!

D7       G  Em 
I'm half crazy,

A7                  D 
All for the love of you!

                      G 
It won't be a stylish marriage

  Em      C      G         D7 
I can't afford a carriage,____

    G           D7 
But you'll look sweet

G      D7 
On the seat

     G       D7        G 
Of a bicycle built for two!

VERSE 3

G                       D7 
I will stand by you in "wheel" or woe,

       G 
Daisy, Daisy!

                                 D7 
You'll be the bell(e) which I'll ring, you know!

G            D7    G 
Sweet little Daisy Bell!

Em               B7             Em 
You'll take the "lead" in each "trip" we take,

D7                  G 
Then, if I don't do well,

Em        B7         Em 
I will permit you to use the brake,

   A7              D     D7 
My beautiful Daisy Bell!___

CHORUS

G 
Daisy, Daisy,

C                    G 
Give me your answer, do!

D7       G  Em 
I'm half crazy,

A7                  D 
All for the love of you!

                      G 
It won't be a stylish marriage

  Em      C      G         D7 
I can't afford a carriage,____

    G           D7 
But you'll look sweet

G      D7 
On the seat

     G       D7        G 
Of a bicycle built for two!
