Lyrics

O! little daisy growing wild,
Edged with crimson dye,
Thou mindst me when I was a child,
And mak'st me heave a sigh!

When in the meadows gay I strayed,
Adorn'd with many a flow'r,
When in the meadows gay I strayed,
Adorn'd Adorn'd with many a flow'r,
I measur'd not, I measur'd not the hour.

O! little daisy growing wild
Edged with crimson dye
Though mind'st me when I was a child
And mak'st me heave a sigh!
And mak'st me heave a sigh!

Those days to mem'ry ever dear,
Oft have I in review
When soon forgot each silly tear,
And smiles return'd anew.
Say why amongst ten tousand flow'rs
I lov'd thee best of all,
And why past and happy hours
The rose can ne'er recall
The rose the rose can ne'er recall
The rose the rose can ne'er recall.

O! little daisy growing wild,
Edged with crimson dye,
Thou mindst me when I was a child,
And mak'st me heave a sigh.
And mak'st me heave a sigh!
