Cinderella Song Lyrics
Lavender's Blue

Cinderella song lyrics and sheet music "Lavender's Blue", free!  The vocals with piano accompaniment now come in six different keys.  In addition, you will find three free piano versions (from beginner to late elementary) and lead sheets on this page...

This pretty lullaby featured in Cinderella (2015) is actually a very old song from England.  To my surprise, it has been the #1 MOST POPULAR SONG that I have given my vocalists and younger pianists this year - I knew it was a charming, simple melody, but apparently it has something extra going for it!

The following excerpt from the Cinderella 2015 soundtrack, Lavender's Blue, has the Cinderella song lyrics superimposed on the video:

You can also watch the Cinderella trailer at the bottom of this page...

Here are easy piano music sheets for beginners of the lullaby in the new Cinderella movie, with left hand chords, in four different keys to choose from:

Although the Cinderella song  Lavender's Blue is just as pretty with only 3 chords - the I, IV, and V chords - there's a bit more depth of feeling when you incorporate some secondary chords.  Good practice for young players to get away from the I-IV-V7 construction, too!

For late elementary students, this broken chord arrangement is more satisfying:

Even though this is, really, a nursery song, it is very appealing and fun to sing.  However, the easy piano arrangements above are not lively enough for a singing performance, in my opinion!

I've arranged a simple accompaniment that is very pretty and bit more like the audio from the Lily James Cinderella.  My arrangement includes the melody line, as beginning singers usually need this support.

This arrangement comes in six keys, and is for sale, all six keys for $5.00, with the right of unlimited printing FOR YOUR STUDENTS ONLY.  Here is the arrangement, showing page one in the key of Eb, and page two in the key of C:

This lovely song is IDEAL for beginning singers.  The melody spans only six steps, and repeats frequently, with easy intervals.  A good reason to have it in multiple keys.  The interlude in-between each two verses keeps it feeling fresh.

Tell young girls that this is the song Cinderella was singing, high up in her room, when the Prince was searching for her, and they will be SOLD.  (All my singers have loved this piece, which I just started giving them this year.)

  • So why should you buy this music from me, aside from the fact that music stores on and off-line will charge more for just one copy (not counting postage or sales tax!), while I am only charging $5.00 for the right to print unlimited copies (for your students only)?

  • It is available immediately as a digital download onto your computer.

  • You don't have to download any new software into your computer in order to download this PDF. I don't know about you, but I hate clogging up my computer with yet another program I didn't know I needed. You just need a version of Adobe Acrobat or another PDF reader, which all computers come with. If you DON'T have Adobe Acrobat or a similar program, then you couldn't download any of my other PDFs either.

  • The notes and lyrics are a little bigger than the copies currently available in music stores, making reading easier!
  • Speaking of reading the music, you can print this music on any kind of paper you want, and thus avoid the glare of shiny pages (so irritating for accompanists!).

  • Write and make notes all over these copies, in red and other colors, without feeling you are spoiling your music for posterity. I dislike messing up my music books, but learning the piece is always the first priority. These printouts will make great working copies.

Now here's a fun way to help those little girls playing this song break into accompanying the melody with the chords:  Using my own left hand as the model, I encourage a student to take HER left hand and play an OPEN C chord (just C & G without the middle of the chord) in measures 1 and 2.  Then, when it's time for the F chord, sneak the left hand down to that chord using the C (the one her pinky finger was just pressing in the C chord) as a marker.  Instead of finger 5, now finger 1 is on the C, and pinky is on F.  

When it is time to come back up to the C chord, sneak again.  As for the G chord, use a G pinch (G and F pressed together with 1 and 2).  

I tried this with a little girl today and she was even able to close her eyes and sneak from chord to chord!  Then we sang the words to verses 1 and 2 as we played the chords.  It was very fun.  Still, we aren't putting right hand and left hand together yet.  I think I'll just wait a few weeks and see if it happens all on its own...

As a treat, here is the Cinderella 2015 trailer:

I am truly loving this movie, although Ever After - A Cinderella Story is really my favorite of all the Cinderella versions.  That particular version is set in a historical time period, the "forward-looking" time of the Italian renaissance, the time of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, while portraying Prince Henry as the almost-victim of an arranged marriage.  (He calls his royal father "The King of Backward".)

Give your students this easy to learn free piano music from the most recent of the Cinderella movies...
