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 five 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 was the #1 MOST POPULAR SONG that I gave my vocalists and younger pianists a couple of years ago - I knew it was a charming, simple melody, but apparently it has something extra going for it!  

Beginners (girls) still love it, and I always give it to them in the first few months.

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 still 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:

And here is an in-between version, which avoids the complication of two hands moving with quarter notes at the same time, in the key of C only:

Below is a graphic of one of the lead sheets, also with the traditional Lavender's Blue lyrics, (which just happen to be the Cinderella song lyrics as well)!  There are lead sheets in four keys.

This easy lullaby, with its stretch of only six notes, is just right for beginning piano players, singers, and other instrumentalists.  

Finally, here is an "ABCDEFG" kid piano music sheet for this pretty lullaby:

I OFTEN give this to young beginners who are still in the "black notes" stage, as long as they can identify notes.

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 (finger 5) 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...

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.

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 the attic where her stepmother had imprisoned her, when the Prince was searching for her.  

Because he heard her singing far above, he was able to rescue her!

They will be SOLD.  But also show them the movie trailer video at the bottom of this page, followed by a portion of the video above.  

You will see some wide eyes!  All my singers have loved this piece.

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".)
