New Years Song Lyrics


[English Translation]

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 youll buy your pint cup!
and surely Ill buy mine!
And we'll take a cup o kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
But weve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for 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.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And theres a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o thine!
And well take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.



[Burns' original Scots verse]

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
well tak a cup o kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely yell be your pint-stowp!
and surely Ill be mine !
And well tak a cup o kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
well tak a cup o kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes,
and pud the gowans fine ;
But weve wanderd mony a weary fit,
sin auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
well tak a cup o kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidld i' the burn,
frae morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us braid hae roard
sin auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
well tak a cup o kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And theres a hand, my trusty fiere!
and gie's a hand o thine !
And well tak a right gude-willy waught,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
well tak a cup o kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.



[Based off the ballad "Old Long Syne" printed in 1711]

Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
On Old long syne.

CHORUS:
On Old long syne my Jo,
On Old long syne,
That thou canst never once reflect,
On Old long syne.

New Years Song Info:

Auld Lang Syne is a Scots poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. It is well known in many countries, especially in the English-speaking world, its traditional use being to celebrate the start of the New Year at the stroke of midnight.

Auld Lang Syne may be translated into English literally as "old long since", or more loosely as "long long ago", "days gone by" or "old times". So "For auld lang syne", as it appears in the first line of the chorus, can be loosely translated as "for the sake of old times".

Traditionally sung at the conclusion of New Year gatherings in Scotland, it is common practice that everyone joins hands with the person next to them to form a great circle around the dance floor. At the beginning of the last verse, everyone crosses their arms across their breast, so that the right hand reaches out to the neighbour on the left and vice versa. When the tune ends, everyone rushes to the middle, while still holding hands. When the circle is re-established, everyone turns under the arms to end up facing outwards with hands still joined.
