lyrics

Of all the money that e’er I had
I’ve spent it in good company
And all the harm that e’er I’ve done
Alas! It was to none but me
And all I’ve done for want of wit
To memory now, I can’t recall
So fill to me the Parting Glass
Goodnight and joy be with you all

Of all the comrades that e’er I had
They’re sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e’er I had
They’d wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I’ll gently rise, and I’ll softly call
Goodnight and joy be with you all

And man may drink and not be drunk
And a man may fight and not be slain
And a man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcome back again
But since it has so ordered been
By a time to rise and a time to fall
Come fill to me the Parting Glass
Goodnight and joy be with you all

Come fill to me the Parting Glass
Goodnight and joy be with you all
