excerpt | old long ago

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

for auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne.
we'll take a cup o' 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.

for auld lang syne, my dear, 
for auld lang syne.
we'll take 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 mony a weary fit,
sin' auld lang syne.

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

we twa ha paidl'd in the burn,
frae morning sun till dine;
but seas between us braid hae roar'd
sin' auld lang syne.

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

and there's a hand, my trusty fere
and gie's a hand o' thine
and we'll tak a right gude-willie waught, 
for auld lang syne.

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