I will gently rise and I’ll softly call, “Goodnight and joy be with you all.”

Of all the money that e’re I had, I spent it in good company.
And of all the harm that e’re I’ve done, alas was done to none but me.
And all I’ve done for want of wit, to memory now I can’t recall.
So fill to me the parting glass.  Goodnight and joy be with you all.

Of all the comrades that e’re I had, they’re sorry for my going away.
And of all the sweethearts that e’re I had, they wish me one more day to stay.
But since it falls unto my lot that I should rise while you should not,
I will gently rise and I’ll softly call, “Goodnight and joy be with you all.”
