Auld Lang Syne

February 22, 2008 at 4:51 pm Leave a comment

The quintessential New Year’s Eve anthem, written by Scottish poet Robert Burns in the late 18th century.

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 take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
