Scarborough Fair

I

Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
For once she was a true love of mine

II

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
Without any seam or fine needlework
And then she'll be the true love of mine

III

Tell her to wash it in yonder dry well
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
Where water ne'er sprung nor drop of rain fell
And then she'll be the true love of mine

IV

Tell her to dry it on yonder thorn
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
Which never bore blossom since Adam was born
And then she'll be the true love of mine

V

Now he has asked me questions three
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
I hope he will answer as many for me
And then she'll be the true love of mine

VI

Oh, will you find me an acre of land
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
Between the sea foam and the sea sand
And then she'll be the true love of mine

VII

Oh, will you plow it with a lamb's horn
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
And sow it all over with one peppercorn
And then she'll be the true love of mine

VIII

Oh, will you reap it with a sickle of leather
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
And tie it all up with a peacock's feather
And then she'll be the true love of mine

IX

And when you have done and finished your work
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme
Come to me for your cambric shirt
And then she'll be the true love of mine
