scarborough fair lyrics – queensryche

are you going to scarborough fair?
parsley, sage, rosemary & 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)
p*rs*ly, sage, rosemary & 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)
p*rs*ly, sage, rosemary, & 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)
p*rs*ly, sage, rosemary & thyme
(generals order their soldiers to kill)
and to 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 & thyme
remember me to one who lives there
she once was a true love of mine.
