VERSE 1

G 
Lavender's blue, dilly, dilly,

C 
Lavender's green;

G 
When I am king, dilly, dilly,

D7           G 
You shall be queen.

VERSE 2

G 
Call up your men, dilly, dilly,

C 
Set them to work;

G 
Some to the plough, dilly, dilly,

D7          G 
Some to the cart.

VERSE 3

G 
Some to make hay, dilly, dilly,

C 
Some to cut corn;

G 
While you and I, dilly, dilly,

D7             G 
Keep ourselves warm.
