Parting Glass


(ирландская народная)

Kind friends and companions, come join me in rhyme
And lift up your voices in chorus with mine
Let us drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
For we may and might never all meet here again

Chorus:

Here’s a health to the company and one to my lass
Let us drink and be merry all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
For we may and might never all meet here again

Chorus:

Here’s a health to the wee lass that I loved so well
For her style and her beauty, there’s none can excel
She smiles on my countenance and sits on me knee
And sure there’s no one in Earth is as happy as we
Chorus:

Our ship lies at harbor, she’s ready to dock
I wish her safe landing without any shock
And if ever I meet again by land or by sea
I will always remember your kindness to me
