All the money that e'er I had
I spent it in good company 
And all the harm that e'er I 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
Good night and joy be with you all

And all of the comrades that e'er I had
They are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They would wish me one more day to stay
But since it calls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
Good night and joy be with 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 ought to be
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
Come fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all
