Let No Man Steal Your Thyme, Thyme

Let No Man Steal Your Thyme, Thyme

Come all you fair and tender girls
  that flourish in your prime, prime
Beware, beware, keep your garden fair
  Let no man steal your thyme, thyme (2x)

For when your thyme it is past and gone
  He'll care no more for you, you
And every place where your garden was waste
  With spread all over with rue, rue (2x)

A woman is a branchy tree
  And a man a single wand, wand
And from her branches carelessly
  He takes what he can find, find (2x)

sung by Jean Redpath on Skipping Barefoot and by Robin Roberts
