Are you going to scarborough fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt (deep forest green)
Parsley sage rosemary and thyme
Without no seams nor needle work (blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain)
Then she'll be a true love of mine (sleeps unaware of the clarion call)

Tell her to find me an acre of land (a sprinkling of leaves)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme (washes the grave with silvery tears)
Between the salt water and the sea strand (a soldier cleans and polishes a gun)
She'll be a true love of mine

Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather (war bellows blazing in scarlet battalions)
Parsley sage rosemary and thyme (general order their soldiers to kill)
And gather it all in a bunch of heather (and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten)
Then she'll be a true love of mine

Are you going to scarborough fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine
