“Here’s to you and here’s to me. May we never disagree” (toast)

"Here’s to you and here’s to me, the best of friends we’ll always be. But if by chance we disagree, to hell with you and here’s to me!” (or “Here’s to you and here’s to me. May we never disagree. But if we do, to hell with you, and here’s to me!") is a toast that has been printed on many images. There are several versions, and authorship is unknown.

This was printed in the Moravia (IA) Union on January 15, 1948:

“Here’s to you,
And here’s to me,
And may we never disagree,
But if we do,
The heck with you,
Here’s to me.”


This was posted on the newsgroup rec.autos.vw on September 17, 1991:

“‘Here’s to you and here’s to me, true friends may we always be,
but if by chance we disagree, to hell with you and here’s to me!”
-Irish toast”


This was posted under “Irish Toasts” on the newsgroup hr.soc.grad.vinkovc on February 23, 2005:

“Here’s to you and here’s to me.
May we never disagree.
But should we start to fight and ‘cuss,
Here’s to me.
- Frank Masterson”


There is no evidence that the toast originated in Ireland, or that an original version was by Frank Masterson.

And here’s to me.
