: In looking this one up all I find are technical articles or stitching patterns.. can anyone help with the origin or meaning of this phrase? Thanks!

I have a CD of old show tunes. There's one that says something like, "I used to be on the daisy chain, now I'm a chain store daisy." I took this to mean there was some short of chorus line dance with young girls and daisies linked together. And wasn't it once a custom to make necklaces and "crowns" by linking daisies together?
