Song Lyrics

The Wiggles' Debut Album

Greg: Lavender's blue, diddle, diddle, lavender's green,
When I am king, diddle, diddle, you shall be queen.
Call up your men, diddle, diddle, set them to work,
Some to the plow, diddle, diddle, some to the cart.

Some to make hay, diddle, diddle, some to cut corn,
While you and I, diddle, diddle, keep ourselves warm.

(Instrumental break)

Lavender's green, diddle, diddle, Lavender's blue,
If you love me, diddle, diddle, I will love you.

Pop Go The Wiggles!

Sam: Lavender's blue, dilly, dilly, lavender's green,
When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen.

Sam and Dorothy: Roses are red, dilly, dilly, violets are blue
If you love me, dilly, dilly, I will love you.

(Instrumental break)

Sam: Lavender's blue, dilly, dilly, lavender's green,
When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen.

Sam and Dorothy: Roses are red, dilly, dilly, violets are blue
If you love me, dilly, dilly, I will love you.

(Instrumental break)

Sam: Let the birds sing, dilly, dilly

Dorothy: And the lambs play

Sam: We shall be safe, dilly, dilly

Sam and Dorothy: Out of harms way

Carolyn: Lavender's green

Sam: When I am king, dilly, dilly

Carolyn: I will be queen

Who told you so, dilly, dilly

Who told you so

Sam: I told myself, dilly, dilly

I told me so

(Instrumental break)

Carolyn: Who told you so, dilly, dilly

Who told you so

Sam: I told myself, dilly, dilly

I told me so

If your dilly, dilly, heart fills a dilly, dilly way

And if you answer yes

Carolyn: In a pretty little church on a dilly, dilly way

Sam and Carolyn: I'll/You'll be wedded in a dilly, dilly dress on

Sam: Lavender's blue, dilly, dilly

Carolyn: Lavender's green

Sam: When I'll be king, dilly, dilly

Carolyn: I'll be your queen

Sam and Carolyn: When I'll/you'll be my/your king

You'll/I'll be my/your queen
