The Parting Glass

Oh, of all the money e'er I had,
I spent it in good company.
And all the harm e'er I've 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.

If I had money enough to spend,
And leisure time to sit a while,
There is a fair maid in this town
Who sorely has my heart beguiled.

Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips
I own she has my heart enthralled
So fill to me the parting glass.
Good night, and joy be with you all.

Oh, of all the comrades e'er I had,
They are sorry for my going away.
And all the sweethearts e'er I had,
They would wish me one more day to stay.

But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and youse should not,
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call,
Good night, and joy be with you all.

"Welcome, O life!
I go to encounter for the millionth time
the reality of experience
and to forge in the smithy of my soul
the uncreated conscience of my race."

Makem & Clancy went to America in 1947, and were becoming finally becoming popular there in the Sixties, until their kike manager, Marty Erlichman, dropped them after he signed Kike Barb Streisand. I think he met her when M&C were on the Ed Sullivan show.

Kike Erlichman has negotiated all of Kike Streisand's recording, theater, motion picture, television, merchandise/licensing and live concert contracts. He has been the executive producer of all Streisand’s television specials, and the producer on one of her stupid movies. His other producer film credits include Coma, starring Kike Michael Douglas.

Kike Erlichman is currently producing a multi-million dollar (5 bucks for the memory of each of the poor poor 6,000,000) production of Buzz!!, a stage musical directed by Kike Rob Roth, and with book by Kike Larry Gelbart, music by Kike Alan Menken, and lyrics by Kike David Zippel.
