The Story Behind The Song
Auld Lang Syne
("Auld Lang Syne" can be roughly translated as "Long Times Past" or "The Old Days",
but we retain the original phrase in our translated version, below...)

The Traditional Version

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' auld lang syne.

(Chorus)
And for auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

2.
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

3.
We twa hae run about the braes
And pu'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd mony a weary foot
Sin auld lang syne.

CHORUS

4.
We twa hae paidl'd i' the burn,
Frae mornin' sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

CHORUS

5.
And there's a hand, my trusty fiere!
And gie's a hand o' thine!
And we'll tak a right guid willy waught,
For auld lang syne.

The Modern Version

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' auld lang syne.

(Chorus)
And for auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

2.
And you will raise up your drink
And I will raise up mine!
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

CHORUS

3.
We used to run about the hills
And pick wild flowers fine;
But we wander now with weary feet
Since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

4.
We used to paddle in the stream,
From morn till time to dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
Since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

5.
And here's a hand, my trusty friend!
Give me a hand o' thine!
And we'll drink a hearty goodwill toast,
To auld lang syne.

Happy New Year!
