[Verse 1]
There’s a sweet old story
You have heard before
Here among the daisies
Let me tell it o’er;
Only say you love me,
For I love you well,
Answer with a kiss, dear,
Daises never tell.

Daisies won’t tell, dear,
Come kiss me do,
Tell me you love me,
Say you’ll be true,
And I will promise
Always to be
Tender and faithful,
Sweetheart, to thee

[Verse 2]
In a dream I fancied
You were by my side.
While I gathered daisies
One long chain you tied,
‘Round us both I wound it,
Close I held you, too,
Daisies never tell, dear,
Make that dream come true.
