Lavender blue, dilly, dilly

Who told me so
I told myself, dilly, dilly

If your dilly, dilly heart
Feels a dilly, dilly way
And if you'll answer,yes
In a pretty little church
On a dilly, dilly day
I'll be wed in a dilly, dilly dress of

Lavender blue, dilly, dilly
Lavender green
Then you'll be king, dilly, dilly
And I'll be your queen
