Daisy Bell (A Bicycle Built For Two)
Words & Music:
Like so many other old tunes, most people only knew the chorus to this song. Luckily, once again, the fabulous Gunther Anderson provides the full verses & chords for this Victorian chestnut.
C G7 C
There is a flower within my heart -- Daisy! Daisy!
C G7 C G7 C
Planted one day by a glancing dart; planted by Daisy Bell!
Am E7 Am Dm7 G7 C
Whether she loves me or loves me not; sometimes it's hard to tell.
Am Em Am D7 G G7
Yet I am longing to share the lot of the beautiful Daisy Bell
C C7 F Dm7 C
Daisy! Daisy! Give me your answer true.
F C Am D7 G7
I'm half crazy all for the love of you!
F C F
It won't be a stylish marraige,
C Am F G7
I can't afford a carraige.
C G7 C G7
But, you'll look sweet upon the seat
C G7 C
Of a bicycle built for two.
We will go "tandem" as man and wife – Daisy! Daisy!
Ped'ling 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
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!
