Daisy for the 21st Century

Lyrics by Margaret Pye and posted here with her kind permission.

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 look sweet
Upon a seat
Of a bicycle built for two

Hummer, Hummer
Why d’you use so much gas?
Smog in the summer,
It’s such a pain in the ***.
I think I’ll get on my ten-speed.
It’s such a better road deed.
I don’t smell so sweet,
But I can beat
The smell of your SUV.

Hey truck driver!
Please don’t run over me.
I’m a survivor,
Or at least I intend to be.
I’m signalling for a left turn.
I don’t know why you won’t learn.
One thing I don’t wish
Is to end up all squished
‘Neath the wheels of an SUV.
