I was listening to the Leon & Mary Russell Wedding Album the other day and had to do a replay. Was that “Dilly, Dilly” I was hearing? You betcha’! My first thought was, “This is so much better than the Bud Light commercial.” Though the commercial is rather humorous. Actually, what is humorous is hearing a bunch of middle schoolers saying “Dilly, Dilly!” to each other in between classes. The expression “Dilly, Dilly” is similar to the affirmation “Here, Here”, but it is so much more fun to say. But, I digress. Take a listen.
According to Wikipedia, “Lavender’s Blue” is an English folk song and nursery rhyme dating back to the 17th century. There are many variations and up to thirty verses in some of them. Numerous others have sung versions, such as Burl Ives, Dinah Shore and The Wiggles. I think this one is the best, though.
