Lavender Blue lyrics

Lavender's blue,
Dilly diilly*,
Lavender's green,
When I am king,
Dilly dilly,
You shall be queen.

Call up your men,
Dilly dilly,
Set them to work,
Some to the plow,
Dilly dilly,
Some to the cart.

Some to make hay,
Dilly dilly,
Some to cut corn,
While you and I,
Dilly dilly,
Keep ourselves warm.

Lavender's green,
Dilly dilly,
Lavender's blue,
If you love me,
Dilly dilly,
I will love you.

Good to know

*Some people sing "diddle, diddle" instead of "dilly, dilly".
