“(We Wear) Lavender Blue” Lyrics

We wear lavender blue in the morning
Lavender blue at night
Me and my babe
Promenade
To our delight

I dislike your shallow reverence
When I display a preference
For the color of the clothes I choose to wear, yeah
I pride myself on dignity
And your callous animosity
Is a tedious exhibition I can’t bear
Nor do I care

We wear lavender blue in the morning
Lavender blue at night
Me and my babe
Promenade
To our delight

You say clothes are made to keep us warm
And in your madness to conform
Your narrow mind about your sober dress, yeah
While the finger that you point at me
Reflecting your hypocrisy
Is a jaded form of envy I detest
I’m not impressed

We wear lavender blue in the morning
Lavender blue at night
Me and my babe
Promenade
To our delight

We wear lavender blue in the morning
Lavender blue at night
Me and my babe
Promenade
To our delight

We wear lavender blue in the morning
Lavender blue at night
Me and my babe…
