Lyrics

A man may drink and not be drunk,
Or a man may fight and not be slain.
Yes, a man may court a pretty girl
And perhaps be welcomed back again.
For as it has so ordered been
What is once passed can’t be recalled,
So fill to me the parting glass,
Goodnight and joy be with you all.

If I had the money for to spend,
I’d spend it in good company.
And all the harm that I have caused,
Perhaps it’s pardoned, I would be.
And as it has so ordered been
What is once passed can’t be recalled,
So fill to me the parting glass,
Goodnight and joy be with you all.

Oh my dearest dear, the time draws near
When here no longer I can stay.
And it’s a broken heart I leave behind
For as grieved bent I’m going away.
And as it has so ordered been
What is once passed can’t be recalled,
So fill to me the parting glass,
Goodnight and joy be with you all.
