The Parting Glass

This is a traditional Irish goodbye song, often sung with friends, similar to Auld Lang Syne (but pre-Auld Lang Syne).

"Of all the money e'er I had,
I spent it in good company.
And all the harm I've ever done,
Alas! it was to none but me.
And all I've done for want of wit
To mem'ry now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all."
