When I met my little darling Daisy
Down by the garden wall,
I was walking beneath the trees so shady,
Going for a twilight call.
She was sleeping on a bed of roses,
Dreaming of the by-and-by,
And the little birds around were singing
Up among the branches high.

Chorus: She's my darling Daisy;
Her smile could set you crazy.
We love to dance among the roses
Down by the garden wall.
'Tis there I love to meet my Daisy
When I make a twilight call.

How I love to sing and dance with Daisy
Down by the garden wall,
For she turns about so light and airy,
You never hear a footstep fall.
If you want to see a dark-eyed beauty,
Bright as the stars that shine,
You may come along with me some evening,
And see that pretty girl of mine.
