Auld Lang Syne

Words adapted from a traditional song by Rabbie Burns(1759-96) 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 of kindness yet, For auld 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! We twa hae run about the braes , And pou'd the gowans fine, But we've wander'd monie a weary fit , Sin auld lang syne. 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. And there's a hand my trusty fiere , And gie's a hand o thine, And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught , For auld lang syne.
