Auld Lang Syne - Robert Burns

Happy New Year Everyone! Let's remember the past for good time's sake and let's welcome 2011 high with optimism for goodness sake.

I read an article featured in Yahoo! News about this song and I am sharing the lyrics with you and for better understanding of the lyrics, which is an old English, I believe, please visit the website robertfrost.org.

Enjoy the New Year, Year of the Rabbit!

Auld Lang Syne


1788
Type: Poem
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

Chorus.-For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye'll be your pint stowp!
And surely I'll be mine!
And we'll tak a cup o'kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd mony a weary fit,
Sin' auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin' auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

And there's a hand, my trusty fere!
And gie's a hand o' thine!
And we'll tak a right gude-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.
