Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme

Remember me to one who lives there

He once was a true love of mine



Tell him i'll make him a cambric shirt

Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme

Without no seams nor needlework

Then he'll be a true love of mine



Take him to find us an acre of land

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme

Between salt water and the sea strand

Then he'll be a true love of mine



Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather

Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme

And gather it all in a bunch of heather

Then he'll be a true love of mine



Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

Parsley, sage, rosemary & thyme

Remember me to one who lives there

He once was a true love of mine.
