Walking through the garden with fuschias, pinks and stocks,
Honeysuckle on the wall, geraniums and phlox.
Pansies growing in a tub and ivy up a tree,
But I was disappointed because nowhere could I see:

Chorus (accumulative):
A daisy, a daisy, a crazy lazy daisy,
A purple-hooded, greater-budded, crazy lazy daisy.
An always prickly, sometimes tickly,
purple-hooded, greater-budded, crazy lazy daisy.

I walked beside the farmers fields and wondered what was growing,
I searched through all the hedgerows and the meadow he’d been mowing.
Lots of grass and lots of trees and a great big field of rye,
But I was disappointed because nowhere did I spy….

A daisy, a daisy, a crazy lazy daisy,
A purple-hooded greater-budded, crazy lazy daisy.
An always prickly, sometimes tickly,
Purple-hooded, greater-budded, crazy lazy daisy.
A lesser spotted, polka-dotted, always prickly,
sometimes tickly, purple-hooded, greater-budded,
crazy lazy daisy.

Then just as I giving up I came across a mass
Of prickly, tickly daisies that were growing in the grass.
I heard the farmer with his mower heading down the lane,
And so I rescued just enough to make myself a chain…

Of daisies, daisies, crazy lazy daisies,
Purple-hooded, greater-budded, crazy lazy daisies.
Lesser spotted, polka-dotted, always prickly,
sometimes tickly, purple-hooded, greater-budded,
crazy lazy daisies.
Always prickly, sometimes tickly, purple-hooded,
greater-budded, crazy lazy daisies.
Tangle-worted, mini-skirted, lesser spotted,
polka-dotted, always prickly, sometimes tickly,
purple-hooded, greater-budded, crazy lazy daisy.
