April Come She Will

Lyrics & music by Paul SIMON. Interpreted by Paul SIMON et Arthur GARFUNKEL. Album: Sounds of Silence, 1965.

April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.

June she’ll change her tune,
In restless walks she’ll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The automn winds blow chilly and cold;
September, I’ll remember,
A new love once new has now grown old.

Scarbrorough Fair / Canticle

Lyrics & music by Paul SIMON. Interpreted by Paul SIMON and Arthur GARFUNKEL. Album: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, 1966.

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 needle work,
Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

On the side of a hill in the deep forest green.
Tracing of sparrow on snow-crested brown.
Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain
Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.

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.

On the side of a hill a sprinkling of leaves.
Washes the grave with silvery tears.
A soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.

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.

War bellows blazing in scarlet battalions.
General order their soldiers to kill.
And to fight for a cause they’ve long ago forgotten.
