Daisy Bell

Written in 1892 by Harry Dacre, Daisy Bell is said to have been inspired by Daisy Greville, Countess of Warwick, one of the many mistresses of King Edward VII.

Chorus

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, upon the seat,
Of a bicycle built for two!

Daisy Bell sung by Norma Dunbar
