Auld Lang Syne?


All together now!

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 jo (or 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.
CHORUS

We twa hae run about the braes, and pu’d the gowans fine ;

But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit, sin auld lang syne.
CHORUS

We twa hae paidl’d i' the burn, frae morning sun till dine ;

But seas between us braid hae roar’d sin auld lang syne.
CHORUS

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere ! and gie's a hand o’ thine !

And we’ll tak a right gude-willy waught, for auld lang syne.
