Auld Lang Syne (lyrics) Courtesy of The Dirt Farmer


483a
Don't be left out in the cold this year, or worse yet, get caught mumbling incoherent lyrics to the song sang the world over to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another.
Auld Lang Syne is actually a 1788 Robert Burns poem put to song. Loosely translated to "old long since" the poem is meant to, of course, celebrate a new year.
Here's the full poem. Keep it around, lest you be the only one in the room not belting it out once midnight hits.


Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
 
We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.
 
We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine† ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.
 
And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give me a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEAR’S CELEBRATION!
GOOD FORTUNES TO YOU AND YOURS IN THE COMING NEW YEAR!
