No. 7 - Song - Daisy - "Little Daisy with the Dimple" or "I Wonder Why?"

MIDI File

Daisy: Oh, I'm a simple little maid
Who really doesn't know a thing
My innocence you'll find display'd
In ev'ry word I'm going to sing
And yet so much I long to learn
That here and there I peep and pry
Things puzzle me at ev'ry turn
I wonder why! I wonder why!
Oh, the people call me Daisy,
Little Daisy with the dimple
And they say they are so fond of me
because I am so simple
But they tell me I am certain
to be wiser by and by
And the more I think it over,
well, the more I wonder why!
   
  My fellow creatures I've been told
To study closely when I can
And whether he be young or old
The creature I prefer is man.
His habits do amuse me so
I've seen him face the midnight air
And start from home quite late to go
I wonder where! I wonder where!
Yes, the people call me Daisy,
Little Daisy with the dimple
And they say they are so fond of me
because I am so simple
But they tell me I am sure to learn a lot I don't know now
And the more I think it over,
well, the more I wonder how!
   
  If ever I should take a walk
A funny thing I'm sure to see
The men, in passing, stop their talk
And then turn round and look at me
Though rudeness they may not intend
It's rather trying, is it not?
For one will whisper to his friend
I wonder what! I wonder what!
For the people call me Daisy,
Little Daisy with the dimple
And they say they are so fond of me
because I am so simple
But perhaps it's that attraction,
or perhaps they hope I'm rich
And the more I think it over, well,
the more I wonder which.
