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!

Chorus of “Daisy Bell”, written in 1892 by Harry Dacre and sung by Katie Lawrence. In 1961 it was sung by a computer. A few years later, HAL 9000 gave another famous rendition of the song, in Kubrick’s 2001 A Space Odyssey (1968).
