*Below is the traditional Scottish song. And no, you aren't crazy if you don't recognize ever singing this before. Most people sing the first verse and chorus, and say ?old acquaintance? and change the last line to ?and days of auld lang syne".*

 

 

 

*Lyrics of Auld Lang Syne*

 

 

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 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!

 

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
