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 or might never all meet here again

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 or might never all meet here again

Here's a health to the dear lass that I love so well
Her style and her beauty, sure none can excel
There's a smile upon her countenance as she sits on my knee
Sure there's no one in the wide world as happy as we

(CHORUS)

Our ship lies at harbour, she's ready to dock
I hope she's safe landed without any shock
If ever we should meet again by land or by sea
I will not forget your kindness to me

(CHORUS)

My footsteps may falter — my wit, it might fail
My course may be challenged by the worst northern gale
E'er fortune should prove to be my friend or my foe
You will always be with me wherever I go

(CHORUS)

We may or might never all meet here again
