scarborough fair lyrics – faithfull marianne

are you going to scarborough fair
parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
remember me to one that lives there
for once she once was a true lover of mine.

tell her to make me a cambric shirt
parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
one with no seams, of fine needlework
and then she’ll be a true lover of mine.

tell her to dry it ‘pon yonder th*rn
parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
that never bore fruit since adam was born
and then she’ll be a true lover of mine.

ah, can you find me an acre of land
parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
between the salt sea and the sea sand
or never be a true lover of mine.

and can you plough it with a sheep’s h*rn
parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
and sow it all over with one peppercorn
or never be a true lover of mine.

and when you have done and finished your work
parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
then come to me for your cambric shirt
and then you’ll be a true lover of mine.
