Scarborough Fair – Simon & Garfunkel!

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,
parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
Without no seams nor needlework,
then she’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to find me an acre of land,
parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
Between salt water and the sea strands,
then she’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to reap it in a sickle of leather,
parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
And gather it all in a bunch of heather,
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.
