Tomorrow, I fly. Farewell, friends :]
All the money that ‘ere I spent / I spent it in good company / And all the harm I’ve ever done, / Alas, it twas 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 to you all.
[Chorus] Fill to me the parting glass, / And drink a health what e’er befalls / And gently rise and softly call, / Goodnight and joy be to you all.
All the comrades that ‘ere I had, / They’re sorry for my going away / And all the sweethearts that ‘ere I had, / They wish me one more day to stay
But since it fell into my lot / That I should fly and you should not, / I gently rise and softly call / Goodnight and joy be to you all.
