Daisy Bell

The song, “Daisy Bell”, composed by Englishman Harry Dacre in 1892, doesn’t actually record Daisy’s response to her suitor’s proposal that she join him on a tandem. He has now, somewhat posthumously, agreed to reveal what it was:

Here’s the truth about cycling Daisy,
Who I’d wooed for many long days. She
Replied, when I asked her,
“T’would be a disaster!
Ride a tandem – with you? Are you crazy?”
