Lyrics

Oh, the summertime is comin’
And the trees are sweetly blooming
And wild mountain thyme
Grows around the bloomin’ heather.
Will ye go, lassie, go?

Chorus:
And we’ll all go together,
To plug wild mountain thyme,
All around the bloomin’ heather.
Will ye go, lassie, go?

I will build my love a tower,
By yon clear crystal fountain,
And around it I will place,
All the flowers of the mountain.
Will ye go, lassie, go?

Chorus:
And we’ll all go together,
To plug wild mountain thyme,
All around the bloomin’ heather.
Will ye go, lassie, go?

If my true love he/she were gone,
I would surely find another,
Where the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the bloomin’ heather.
Will ye go, lassie, go?

Chorus:
And we’ll all go together,
To plug wild mountain thyme,
All around the bloomin’ heather.
Will ye go, lassie, go?
