Lavender's blue, diddle diddle
Lavender's green,
When I am king, diddle diddle
You shall be queen.
Lavender's green, diddle diddle
Lavender's blue,
You must love me, diddle diddle
'Cause I love you.

Down in the vale, diddle diddle
Where flowers grow,
And the birds sing, diddle diddle
All in a row.
A brisk young man, diddle diddle
Met with a maid,
And laid her down, diddle diddle
Under the shade.

My dear be kind, diddle diddle
While here we lie,
And you will love, diddle diddle
And never cry.
For you and I, diddle diddle
Now all are one,
And we will lie, diddle diddle
No more alone.

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.
