W:A man may drink and not be drunk,
W:A man may fight and not be slain,
W:A man may court a pretty girl,
W:And perhaps be welcome back again.

W:Chorus:
W:But as it has so ordered been,
W:What is once past can't be recalled,
W:So fill to me the parting glass,
W:Good night and joy be with you all.
W:
W:My dearest dear, the time draws near,
W:When here no longer I can stay,
W:There's not a comrade I leave behind,
W:But it's grieving that I'm going away
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:If I had the money for to spend,
W:I'd spend it in good company,
W:And all the harm that I have done,
W:I hope it's pardoned I will be.
W:
W:Chorus
