I'm not posting to bump up my ratings score. I'm just sharing with everyone who I am.

Now to the post topic-The most embarrassing thing(s) about me I'm willing to admit to is/are:


I'll go first:

1-I 'snort' when I laugh
2-Once got drunk, climbed a tree , hung upside down from a branch and sang "Daisy" outside the womens barracks at
Fort Sam Houston, TX. (Hey, I was only 22 at the time)
3-Snore like a chainsaw. And talk in my sleep.

So if any ladies are considering me for. . .? Take notes as more truths will be coming in future posts.

Next person.

Number 1, I do, and number 2, I probably will never do, as I never have been drunk (and I'm 23).

Number two sounds bloody amusing though. Did they ask for an encore, try to shoot you, or throw used hygeine products in your general direction?

"Daisy, Daisy,
Give me your answer true....

I'm just crazy...."

Ah, bugger, I'll just look it up on Wikipedia and copy it over.

BTW, if you watched 2001: A Space Oddysey, HAL was singing this as he "died".

Ah, here we go...

Website linked to from Wikipedia wrote:

There is a flower
Within my heart,
Daisy, Daisy!
Planted one day
By a glancing dart,
Planted by Daisy Bell!
Whether she loves me
Or loves me not,
Sometimes it's hard to tell;
Yet I am longing to share the lot -
Of beautiful Daisy Bell!

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 made for two.

We will go 'tandem'
As man and wife,
Daisy, Daisy!
'Peddling' away
Down the road of life,
I and my Daisy Bell!
When the road's dark
We can both despise
P'licemen and 'lamps' as well;
There are 'bright lights’
In the dazzling eyes
Of beautiful Daisy Bell!

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 made for two.

I will stand by you
In 'wheel' or woe,
Daisy, Daisy!
You'll be the bell(e)
Which I'll ring you know!
Sweet little Daisy Bell!
You'll take the 'lead'
In each 'trip' we take,
Then if I don't do well,
I will permit you to
Use the brake,
My beautiful Daisy Bell!


Most renditions I hear seem to start with the chorus. It's from 1892. I remember it mostly from a sequence in a theatre in "Doctor Who: The Talons of Weng-Chiang".
