For thyme it is a precious thing
And thyme brings all things to my mind.
Thyme with all its flavours, along with all its joys
Thyme, brings all things to my mind.

Once I and a bunch of thyme
I thought it never would decay
Then came a lusty sailor who chanced to pass my way
He stole my bunch of thyme away.

The sailor gave to me a rose
A rose that never would decay
He gave it to me to keep me reminded
Of when he stole my thyme away.
