History for 'Scarborough Fair'

In 1253 a charter granted by King Henry III of England to host "a yearly fayre in the Borough." The seaside resort of Scarborough became an important venue for tradesmen from Europe, England, Norway, Denmark, the Byzantine and the Baltic Empire. 'Scarborough Fair' no longer exists, though several celebrations take place each September to mark the original event.


Lyrics for 'Scarborough Fair'

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.

Are you going to Scarborough Faire?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Remember me to one who lived there,
She once was a true love of mine.

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

Tell her to weave it in a sycamore wood lane,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Gather it up in a basket of flowers,
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Have her wash it in yonder dry well,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Where water ne'er sprung, nor drop of rain fell,
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

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

Plow the land with the horn of a lamb,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Then sow some seeds from north of the dam,
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Have her reap it with a sickle of leather,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Gather it up in a bunch of heather,
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

If she tells me she can't, then I'll reply,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Let me know, that at least she will try,
Then she'll be a true love of mine.

Love imposes impossible tasks,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Though not more than any heart asks,
And I must know she's true love of mine.

When thou has finished thy task,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Come to me my hand for to ask,
For then you'll be a true love of mine.
