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
