Kind friends and companions, come join me in rhyme.
Come lift up your voices in chorus with mine
Let us drink and be merry, all grief to refrain,
For we may and might never all meet here again.

So here’s a health to the company, and one to my lass.
Let us drink and be merry, all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry all grief to refrain,
For we may and might never all meet here again.

So here’s a health to the wee lass that I love so well
For style and for beauty there’s none can excel.
She smiles on my countenance as she sits on my knee.
Sure, there’s no one on earth as happy as me.

So here’s a health to the company, and one to my lass.
Let us drink and be merry, all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry all grief to refrain,
For we may and might never all meet here again.

Our ship lies at harbor, she’s ready to dock
I wish her safe landing without any shock.
And if ever we meet again, by land or by sea.
Sure, I’m always remembering her kindness to me.

So here’s a health to the company, and one to my lass.
Let us drink and be merry, all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry all grief to refrain,
For we may and might never all meet here again.

So here’s a health to the company, and one to my lass.
Let us drink and be merry, all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry all grief to refrain,
For we may and might never all meet here again.

So here’s a health to the company, and one to my lass.
Let us drink and be merry, all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry all grief to refrain,
For we may and might never all meet here again.



A traditional Irish drinking song, particularly when those singing are maudlin drunk. The version I used to get the lyrics was arranged by The Minstrels of Mayhem.
