A Health to the Company

Kind friends and companions come join me in rhyme
come lift up your voices in chorus with mine
come lift up your voices all grief to refrain
for we may and might never all meet here again

So here's a health to the company and one for 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 dear lass that I love so well
her style and her beauty there's none can excel
there's a smile on her pretty face when she sits on me knee
there's not a man in this whole world as happy as me

So here's a health to . . .

Ther's a ship lies at anker she's ready to dock
and I wish her safe landing without any shock
if ever I should meet you by land or by sea
I will always remember your kindness to me

So here's a health to . . .
