Lavender blue, dilly, dilly  Lavender green
If I were king, dilly, dilly 
I'd need a queen 

Who told me so, dilly, dilly 
Who told me so
I told myself, dilly, dilly 
I told me so

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

Of lavender blue, dilly, dilly  Lavender green
Then I'll be king, dilly, dilly 
And you'll be my queen 

Great-grandfather met great grandmother
When she was a shy young miss
And great-grandfather won great-grandmother
With words more or less like this

 Lavender blue, dilly, dilly  Lavender green
If you were king, dilly, dilly 
You need a queen 

Who told you so, dilly, dilly 
Who told you so
I told myself, dilly, dilly 
I told me so

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
you'll be wed in a dilly, dilly dress of

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