“Health to the Company” is a traditional Irish Drinking Song that is written to describe the long history of emigration from Ireland.

Lyrics

Kind friends and companions, come join me in rhyme
And 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

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 dear lass that I love so well
Her style and her beauty, sure none can excel
She smiles on my countenance and sits on me knee
Sure there’s no one in Erin as happy as we

Our ship lies at harbor, she’s ready to dock
I hope she’s safe landed without any shock
If ever I meet you by land or by sea
I will always remember your kindness to me
