Health to the Company

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

Chorus:
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

Here's a health to the wee lass that I love so well
Her style and her beauty, sure none can excel
She smiles on my countenance as she sits on my knee
Sure there's no one in Erin as happy as we

Our ship lies at harbor, she's ready to dock
I wish her safe landing without any shock
If ever we meet again by land or by sea
I will always remember your kindness to me
