Auld Lang Syne

Postby Warmsoul/Jeanie13 » Mon Dec 31, 2012 5:01 pm

"Auld Lang Syne" is from old Scottish dialect and can be translated as "times gone by". The poem/song is about love and friendship in times gone by. The lyrics 'We'll take a Cup of Kindness yet' relate to a drink shared by men and women to symbolise friendship.

Auld Lang Syne

Version Sung

Should old acquaintances 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 o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

Verse Two

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 sine

Chorus repeat

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld Lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

Translation

Should old acquaintances be forgotten
and never remembered
Should old acquaintance be forgotten
For times gone by

Chorus

For times gone by, my dear
For times gone by
We will take a cup of kindness yet
For times gone by

And there is a hand my trust friend
And give me a hand of yours
And we will take of a goodwill drink
For times gone by

For times gone by, my dear
For times gone by
We will take a cup of kindness yet
For times gone by

Happy New Year!
