Lavender's Blue

A traditional lullaby. Extremely pretty!
You may recognize it from its prominent role in the 2015 remake of Cinderella.



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.

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.

Lavender’s green, dilly, dilly,
Lavender’s blue.
You must love me, dilly, dilly,
For I love you.

Let the birds sing, dilly, dilly,
And the lambs play.
We shall be safe, dilly, dilly,
Out of harm’s way.

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.

Roses are red, violets are blue.
If you love me, dilly, dilly
I will love you.
