Daisy, daisy my dear
it's been five years since I left your home
When I didn't come back to your shore
was not to say that I didn't mean to - no

I've been biding my time
becoming the man you've always wanted of me
And now I've got you in my life, and I won't let go

I don't know whether I should go or stop
every time I see that green light at the end of your dock

But I've been biding my time
becoming the man you've always wanted of me
And now I've got you in my life, and I won't let go

Daisy, please don't make me beg
I would up and leave West Egg
if it's what you demand

We could just keep moving east
where I'll build you a new life
where the ocean meets the sand

I would give all of this up
I would drain this well-filled cup
if it meant you at my side

But I know things aren't as they seem
If I gave up this American dream
I could never catch your eye
