“Lavender’s blue” lyrics

1. Lavender’s blue, dilly, dilly, lavender’s green
When I am king, dilly, dilly, You shall be queen
Who told you so, dilly, dilly, who told you so?
‘Twas my own heart, dilly, dilly, that told me so

2. Call up your men, dilly, dilly, set them to work
Some to the plough, dilly, dilly, some to the fork
Some to make hay, dilly, dilly, some to cut corn
While you and I, dilly, dilly, keep ourselves warm

3. Lavender’s green, dilly, dilly, Lavender’s blue
if you love me, dilly, dilly, I will love you.
Let the birds sing, dilly, dilly, And the lambs play
We shall be safe, dilly, dilly, out of harm’s way

4. I love to dance, dilly, dilly, I love to sing
When I am queen, dilly, dilly, You’ll be my king
Who told me so, dilly, dilly, Who told me so?
I told myself, dilly, dilly, I told me so
