Lyrics

Of all the money that e’er I had,
I spent it in good company
And of 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 softly call
"Goodnight and joy be to you all!"

A man may drink and not be drunk
A man may fight and not be slain
A man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcomed 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
Good night and joy be with you all

So fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate'er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
"Good night and joy be to you all"

So fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate'er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
"Good night and joy be to you all"

Come fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all
