When I am King you will be Queen

After quoting Marillion last night I found this morning that I only have two of their songs on mp3. This is a quite big gap in my collection. In 1986-88 they were my band of choice for angst-y stuff. It was either them or The Smiths and, frankly, all the Smiths fans I knew at the time were wankers I didn’t want to have anything in common with. We know who made the lasting impact, but at the time I made the right choice.

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

Lavenders blue, dilly dilly, lavenders 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.o.u. for your love
I.o.u. for your love

Lavenders green, dilly dilly, lavenders 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.o.u. for your love
I.o.u. 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.o.u for your love
I.o.u. for your love
For your love

Marillion – Lavender
