Source Notes: "Daisy Bell." Margaret Bradford Boni, editor of The Fireside Book of Favorite American Songs (1952), notes that when Dacre came to this country from England he was "astounded" at the duty charged as a result of the bicycle he had transported. According to Boni, "A chance remark of a friend, 'Lucky for you it was not built for two,' gave Dacre the idea for his famous bicycle song, 'Daisy Bell,' which started the whole cycle of bicycle songs so popular in the '90s."
