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:
(On the side of a hill in the deep forest green,)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,)
Without no seams nor needlework
(Blankets and bedclothes, a child of the mountains)
Then she'll be a true love of mine
(Sleeps unaware of the clarion call)

Tell her to find me an acre of land:
(On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves.)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Washed is the ground with so many tears,)
Between the salt water and the sea strand
(A soldier cleans and polishes a gun.)
Then she'll be a true love of mine

Tell her to reap it in a sickle of leather:
(War bellows blazing in scarlet battalions,)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Generals 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
