Dacre - Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two)

Sheet music for violin

Info: Popular song with the well-known chorus "Daisy, Daisy / Give me your answer, do. / I'm half crazy / all for the love of you", ending with the words "a bicycle built for two". The song was inspired by Daisy Greville, one of the many mistresses of King Edward VII. The reference in the last line to "a bicycle built for two" is an subtle reference to the infamous "sex chair" that the monarch had constructed in his Paris apartment whilst he was Prince of Wales. It is the earliest song sung using computer speech synthesis, as later referenced in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
