Single version

I was walking in the park
Dreaming of a spark
When I heard the sprinklers whisper
Shimmer in the haze of summer lawns
Then I heard the children singing
They were running through the rainbows
They were singing a song for you
Well it seemed to be a song for you
The one I wanted to write for you
For you
You

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly
Lavender's green
When I am King, dilly dilly
You will be Queen
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I owe you for your love
I owe you for your love

Lavender's green, dilly dilly
Lavender's blue
When you love me, dilly dilly
I will love you
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I owe you for your love
I owe you for your love

Lavender dreams dilly, dilly
Lavender true
When you miss me dilly dilly
I did miss you
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I owe you for your love
I owe you for your love
For your love
For your love
For your love

Oh I'm gonna get back to you
Gonna find my way back to you

For your love
For your love
For your love

I'm always walking in the park
Always dreaming of a spark
From you


Live from Lorelei version (2009 release)

We were wrong
Oh so very wrong

It was so short

I was walking in the park
Dreaming of a spark
When I heard the sprinklers whisper
Shimmer in the haze of summer lawns
Then I heard the children singing
They were running through the rainbows
They were singing a song for you
Well it seemed to be a song for you
The one I wanted to write for you
For you

This is for you

And I could hear them singing singing
C'mon

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly
Lavender's green
When I am King, dilly dilly
You will be Queen
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I owe you for your love
I owe you for your love

Sing!

Lavender's green, dilly dilly
Lavender's blue
When you love me, dilly dilly
I will love you
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I owe you for your love
Louder!
I owe you for your love
For your love
For your love
For your love

Für deine Liebe
Für deine Liebe
Für deine Liebe
Für deine Liebe
