The Parting Glass

O, all the money e'er I had,
I spent it in good company.
And all the harm that e'er I did,
Alas, it was to none but me.
And all I've done for want of wit
To mem'ry now I can't recall;
So fill to me the parting glass,
Good night and joy be with you all.
2. O, all the comrades e'er I had,
Are sorry for my going away.
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had,
Would wish me one more day to stay.
But since it falls unto my lot,
That I should rise and you should not,
I gently rise and softly call,
Goodnight and joy be with you all.
3. If I had money enough to spend,
And leisure time to sit awhile.
There is a fair maid in this town,
That sorely has my heart beguiled.
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips,
I own, she has my heart enthralled;
Then fill to me the parting glass,
Good night and joy be with you all.
