Lavender's Blue,又或者叫Lavender Blue,係首英文民歌,意思係薰衣草。首歌可以早到去十七世紀

首歌因為咁古老,歌詞有好多變種。其中副歌一句Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, rosemary's green,家下畀唔少人唱成Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green。呢個變動1849年或者更早已經有嘞,傳聞係第十二夜個節日選王選后而來。

首歌二十世紀風行一時,係拜1948年迪士尼套片So Dear to My Heart所賜。套年用首歌做主題曲,由Burl Ives所唱。呢首亦係Ives第一首金曲。之後好多歌手都翻唱呢首歌。

雖然有成三十幾個版本,但最常見係呢個版:

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green,
When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen.
Who told you so, dilly, dilly, who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly, dilly, that told me so.
Call up your men, dilly, dilly, set them to work
Some with a rake, dilly, dilly, some with a fork.
Some to make hay, dilly, dilly, some to thresh corn.
While you and I, dilly, dilly, keep ourselves warm.
Lavender's green, dilly, dilly, Lavender's blue,
If you love me, dilly, dilly, I will love you.
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.
Who told me so, dilly, dilly, Who told me so?
I told myself, dilly, dilly, I told me so.
