Lavender's Blue, Dilly Dilly

Photobucket

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender's green
When you are King, dilly dilly,
I shall be Queen

Photobucket

Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so

Photobucket

Call up your friends, dilly, dilly
Set them to work
Some to the plow, dilly dilly,
Some to the fork

Photobucket

Some to the hay, dilly dilly,
Some to thresh corn
Whilst you and I, dilly dilly,
Keep ourselves warm




Photobucket

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender's green
When you are King, dilly dilly,
I shall be Queen


Photobucket

Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so

  1. Your "singing" has taken me back to my childhood when I sang with my mother. And...by the way...I like picturing Burl Ives in earrings!

  2. According to a friend who knew him well, Burl was a dilly alright!
