Auld Lang Syne

play music pause music
mute music

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of 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.

Additional verses

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.

We twa hae paidl't in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine.
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin' auld lang syne.

And surely ye'll be your pint stoup
And surely I'll be mine.
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne.
