1.
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.

2.
Tell her to make me a cambric shirt,
Parsley, sage rosemary and thyme.
Without no seams nor needle work.
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

3.
Tell her to find me an acre of land.
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Between the salt water and the sea strand.
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

4.
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 she'll be a true love of mine.

5.
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.
