Celtic Woman - The Parting Glass Lyrics




Of all the money that e'er I had
I spent it in good company
And all the harm I've ever done
Alas it was to none but me
And all I've done for want of wit
To mem'ry now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be to you all

[Chorus]
So fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate’er befalls
And gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all

Of all the comrades that e'er I had
They're sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They'd wish me one more day to stay
But since it fell unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all

Fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate’er befalls
And gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all

La La

But since it fell unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all

[Chorus]

Good night and joy be to you all.

    This song is the song of my College class. We would all sing it whenever we were saying goodbye for whatever reason. Has so many bittersweet memories associated with it. It is one of those songs which brings a smile to my face and a tear to my eye at the same time.

  57. hermann preisler

    die sind einzigartig. Die müssen weitermachen... Lange.

  58. Stuart Ongley

    This is the first time I have heard this tune, yet, after years of listening to Celtic Tunes, it still has a haunting beauty to it, one of the reasons why I feel Celtic Music, along with Classical and Opera, are still the best Music Genres around.

  59. Jarrid Gable

    They says when you hear beautiful music it's akin to a religious experience. There's an indescribable feeling that washes over people when they hear music they deem beautiful

  60. bamiers14

    One of my favorite songs of all time. My grandpa passed in October of 2017 and this was played at his funeral.

  61. Samurai X

    Beautiful simply beautiful

  62. Kevin Muldoon

    I love Celtic Woman and Celtic Thunder music

  63. Bethany Griggs

    Of all the money that e'er I had
    I spent it in good company
    And all the harm I've ever done
    Alas it was to none but me
    And all I've done for want of wit
    To mem'ry now I can't recall
    So fill to me the parting glass
    Good night and joy be to you all
    So fill to me the parting glass
    And drink a health whate’er befalls
    And gently rise and softly call
    Good night and joy be to you all
    Of all the comrades that e'er I had

    So fill to me the parting glass
    And drink a health whate’er befalls
    And gently rise and softly call
    Good night and joy be to you all
    Good night and joy be to you all.

    Roger Sledz

    Thank you very much for all the effort it took you to type in all these lyrics. I can now understand every word; added to the beautiful
    voices and music. Having the words makes this song so much more enjoyable.

    alice suchanoff

    Thank you.

  64. Shane Beard

    you rock I’m shanebearddj

  65. Ailsa Mcinroy

    It's both Scottish and Irish as we are the same people. "The've"done a grand job of divide and rule. I urge you to look at the Dalriada. Lovely song and lovely rendition.

  66. Roa21

    They are Assassins 😊❤️😍 I am in love with this song...still sad because od that ending of Assassin's Creed 4

  67. Terry Blanton

    I swear, that Celtic Woman who plays the pipes is one manly looking woman,but she wears a skirt, so she must be a woman.

    Jonathan Mazurkiewicz

    Kilts are awesome, in a way.

  68. Earl Hedrick

    All of yall are pure fantastic Ladies doin some unreal singin, It touches ya deep and I think it will soften the hardest Heart.

  69. Mexican Sativa

    too much europe, to less irish

  70. Louise Mcilwaine

    RIP George Donaldson The Owner Of This Amazing Song Gone 4 Years Now Taken To Soon Only 46 GBNF We Miss You George 💙🎸🎙🎶🎶🎶🎶

  71. theSpartan IcedCrab

    Okay, they did a great job and for that they deserve credit, but they didn’t have to use The High Kings version of the song. They could have and should have done something else to make it seem more unique.

    (This comment does not express the view of everyone in Spartan Games eSports and is not intended to personally attack anyone, their opinions, or their beliefs/ideals.)

  72. Mark Smith

    amazing

  73. Matthew McNerlin

    1; no Irish man could stay still to enjoy this, 2; a group of Irish men sing in before battle.

    Jonathan Mazurkiewicz

    it's what the Irish and Scottish sing as a farewell at the end of a gathering of friends as well

  74. Rasmus E

    1:43 it really looks like she's pretending to sing :O

  75. Alessandro Forghieri

    Needs more glitter.

  76. Felicia MacSheoinin

    Beautiful voices

  77. Akhrieu Yiese

    This is one of the best version I've ever heard on parting glass..... You beautiful ladies.... It's not only your outer charm I admire but even you ladies have the most charm n melodies in your voice.... Keep it up....

  78. michael smith

    I will say this - I don't care if some of you think this is faked it isn't they are singing and mairead is playing all those ladies care too much for their fans to fake it and their dresses class all the way and it enhances the beauty of it and everytime I play their songs my spirits lift and life is worth living..

  79. michael smith

    pure joy you can see it on their faces and it cannot be faked especially mairead as she plays along..

  80. Richard Spata-Merrill

    The wholesomeness of the presentation reminds me of the Lawrence Welk Show from days of yore...not to impune their talent....

  81. Andrew Nagengast

    Anne Boony sang it better.

  82. Leenk

    Thus sounds like a song for a graduation

  83. JulieJackson1

    Wow. I'm just discovering a genre that I never knew existed. Count me in.

    w/ e

    JulieJackson1 you never knew irish people had traditional music? What?

  84. Fred Guldbrandsen

    Oh all the money that e'er I had
    I spent it in good company
    And all the harm that e'er I've done
    alas, it was to none but me
    For all I've done for want of wit
    to memory now I can't recall
    So fill to me the parting glass
    good night and joy be with you all

    Oh all the comrades that e'er I've had
    they are sorry for my going away
    And all the sweethearts that e'er I've had
    they would wish me one more day to stay
    But since it falls unto my lot t
    that I should rise and you should not
    I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
    good night and joy be with you all

  85. Joan Williams

    The three of you...your voices...

  86. Fatima Fernandez

    👏👏👏👏 muy hermoso!

  87. Tanner Maxwell

    Beast version of the song personally

  88. Tom Evensen

    Fantastic song and composition!

  89. Earl Hedrick

    GREAT Job Ladies! Great anyway ya look at it!

  90. Andrew Mason

    Beautiful as always, but it sounds like they just changed up The High Kings' version a little bit. Not that that's a bad thing per se, because both versions are magnificent.

  91. Ruth K

    You're all such a disgrace to the irish song tradition. Horrorshow.

    David Knisely

    You are such a disgrace to trolldom everywhere. Pitiful trolling attempt.

    Jonathan Mazurkiewicz

    The Gaelic agree with you David, Your response fits Knisely.

  92. Rumen Marchev

    beautiful display of european music,regards

  93. Karcirok

    rest in peace, edward.

  94. DEBASIS GHOSH

    At least 20 times I listened the song joy to the world performed by celtic woman and compel to say that they are really god gifted,wish a long all the performers of the team,but eager to know their names.

  95. TheCoolProfessor

    I like the Anne Bonney version from AC Black Flag better but this is still pretty
    good.

  96. Frank Jorissen

    So beautiful. The ladies too

  97. Steve Watkins

    To be honest, it looks like they are not singing live. Recorded track ?

    David Knisely

    Go to a Celtic Woman concert and sit in the front few rows. Then (like the rest of us who have done this repeatedly over the years), you will know the truth (i.e. they sing live).

  98. Marte J.R.

    This version of the song sounds more happy. Emily Kinney's version of the song is more sad.

  99. Ness Nouss

    Respect from algeria <3
