    Of all the money that er'e I spent
    I spent it ingood company
    And all the harm that ere I've done
    Alas it was to none but me
    And all I have done
    For want of wit
    To memory now I can't recall
    So fill ne the parting glass
    Goodnight and joy be with you all
    Of all the comrades that er'e I had
    Are sorry for my going away
    And all the sweetheart that er'e 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 will gently rise
    And I'll softly call
    Goodnight and joy be with you all

    If I had enough money to spend
    And leisure time to sit a while
    There is a fair maid in this town
    That sorely has my heart beguiled
    Her rosey cheeks and ruby lips
    I own, she has my heart enthralled
    So fill to me the parting glass
    Goodnight and joy be with you all
