Oh, all the money e'er I had, I spent it in good company
And ll the harm I've ever done, alas it was to none but me
And all I've done for want of with to memory now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass, goodnight and joy be to you all

Oh, 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 in thrall
So fill to me the parting glass, goodnight and joy be to you all

Of all the comrades e'er I had, they're sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts e'er I had, they'd wished me one more day to stay
But since it falls into my lot, that I should rise and you should not
I gently rise and softly call, goodnight and joy be to you all
Goodnight and joy be to you all
