The Parting Glass
Saturday, November 6, 2004

Of all the money 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 memory I can't recall.
So fill to me a parting glass.
Good night and joy be with you all.

Two penguins stood on an Arctic floe
And one penguin said
You look like you're wearing a tuxedo
And the other one said
"Who says I'm not"
It's a land of jokes, the USA
And the capital is in St. Paul
And gently rise and softly say
Good night and God be with you all
