Good Night and Joy Be With You All

From Wonkette commenter (of course!) BadKitty904:

(Rather than go with the more usual Auld Lang Syne, I've included a lesser-known Scottish ditty - The Parting Glass - dating back to the 17th-century and traditionally sung at the closing of events. This version comes from the spectacular BBC series, Cranford.)

Of all the money that e'er I had,
I've 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 memory now I can't recall.
So, fill to me the parting glass,
Good night and joy be with you all!
