Thyme It is a Precious Thing Thyme it is a precious thing Thyme brings all things to your mind Thyme with all its labors, along with all its joys And its thyme brings all things to an end Once I had a sprig of thyme I thought it never would decay Until a saucy sailor chanced upon my way He stole away my bonny bunch of thyme This sailor, he gave to me a rose I thought it never would decay He gave it to me to keep me well-minded Of the night he stole my bonny bunch of thyme So come all you maidens brisk and gay All you that flourish in your prime Beware and take care and keep your garden fair And let no man steal your bonny bunch of thyme sung by John and Tony on Spencer the Rover DC
