Oh, the summer time is coming
And the trees are sweetly blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather.

Refrain:
Will ye go, lassie, go.
And we'll all go together
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather.
Will ye go, lassie, go.

I will build my love a tower
'Round yon pure crystal fountain
And on it I will pile
All the flowers of the mountain.

Refrain

If my true love she were gone
I would surely find another.
Where wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather.

Refrain
