"Daisy Bell (On a Bicycle Built for Two)" is one of the oldest American pop songs, first written and recorded in 1892 by Harry Dacre.[1] Harry found it difficult to publish, and it was first popular in England rather than the United States.[2]

It became famous in the 60s when it was sung by an IBM computer.[3]

Lyrics

 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 upon the seat
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
P'licemen and "lamps" as well,
There are "bright lights"
In the dazzling eyes
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 upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two.


 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!
