Creative Brief

Scarborough Fair is a traditional ballad of Great Britain about the Yorkshire town of Scarborough.

 

 A version published in 1889 (Source: wikipedia):

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;

Remember me to the one who lives there,

For once she was a true love of mine.

 

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt,

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;

Sewn without seams or fine needlework,

If she would be a true love of mine.

 

Tell her to wash it in yonder well,

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;

Where never spring water or rain ever fell,

And she shall be a true lover of mine.

 

Tell her to dry it on yonder thorn,

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;

Which never bore blossom since Adam was born,

Then she shall be a true lover of mine.

 

Now he has asked me questions three,

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;

I hope he'll answer as many for me

Before she shall be a true lover of mine.

 

Tell him to buy me an acre of land,

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;

Between the salt water and the sea sand,

Then she shall be a true lover of mine.

 

Tell him to plough it with a ram's horn,

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;

And sow it all over with one pepper corn,

And she shall be a true lover of mine.

 

Tell him to sheer't with a sickle of leather,

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme;

And bind it up with a peacock feather.

And she shall be a true lover of mine.

 

Tell him to thrash it on yonder wall,

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme,

And never let one corn of it fall,

Then she shall be a true lover of mine.

 

When he has done and finished his work.

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme:

Oh, tell him to come and he'll have his shirt,

And she shall be a true lover of mine.
