A1. SCARBOROUGH FAIR


Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary & 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 & 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 & thyme
Between the salt water and the sea strand
Then she'll be a true love of mine

Tell her to reap it in a sickle of leather
Parsley, sage, rosemary & thyme
And to 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 & thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine.

2. CANTICLE


On the side of a hill in the deep forest green
Tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground
Blankets and bedclothes a child of the mountains
Sleeps unaware of the clarion call
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves
Washed is the ground with so many tears
A soldier cleans and polishes a gun
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions
Generals order their soldiers to kill
And to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten.

AONACH SCARBOROUGH

An bhfuil do thriall ar Scarborough Fair?
Peirsil, sáiste, marós is tím
An luafá mé le hainnirín séimh?
Bhí sí tráth an-ghar do mo chroí.

Abair léi léine as cáimric a shníomh
Peirsil, sáiste, marós is tím
Gan uaim ar bith ná oiread na fríd’
Beidh sí fós an-ghar do mo chroí.

Abair léi acra talún a fháil
Peirsil, sáiste, marós is tím
Idir na dumhcha agus an sáil’
Beidh sí fós an-ghar do mo chroí.

Abair léi é ’bhaint le corrán de leathar
Peirsil, sáiste, marós is tím
Is dornán beag fraoigh chun é a cheangal
Beidh sí fós an-ghar do mo chroí.
