Oh, the summer time is comin',
And the trees are sweetly bloomin';
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the bloomin' heather.
Will ye go lassie go?
And we'll all go together,
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather.
Will ye go lassie go?

I will build my true love a tower
By yon clear and crystal fountain;
And around it I'll arrange
All the flowers of the mountain.
Will ye go lassie go?
And we'll all go together,
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather.
Will ye go lassie go?

If my true love won't come with me,
Then I'll surely find another
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather.
Will ye go lassie go?
And we'll all go together,
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather.
Will ye go lassie go?

Well, summer time is comin',
And the trees are sweetly bloomin',
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the bloomin' heather.
Will ye go lassie go?
And we'll all go together,
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather.
Will ye go lassie go?
And will ye go lassie go?
And will ye go lassie go?

"A record company is capitalising on a blunder by Rod Stewart's label by releasing a version of the 1940's Irish folk song the British Star mistakenly claimed he had written. Stewart's version of the song Purple Heather was incorrectly credited to him on his WEA album Spanner In The Works. And now a version from 1985 by the real writer's son, Jimmy McPeake [b.1936] and his group Barnbrack is being released by Ireland's Outlet Records. McPeake's father Frankie wrote the song in 1947 calling it Will Ye Go Lassie Go."
