Auld Lang Syne
by Robert Burns

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
      and never brought to min’?
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.

We twa hae run about the braes,
      and pou’d the gowans fine,
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot,
      sin’ auld lang syne.

CHORUS

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.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand my trusty fiere!
      and gies a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak a right gude-willie waught,
      for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

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
