“Auld Lang Syne”  lyrics

1. Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and days of auld lang syne?

For days of auld lang syne,
for days of auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for days of auld lang syne.

2. And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!
and surely I’ll buy mine!
And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for days of auld lang syne.

For days of auld lang syne, my dear,
for days of auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for days of auld lang syne.

3. We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
We’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since days of auld lang syne.

For days of auld lang syne,
for days of auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for days of auld lang syne.

4. We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun to night;
But seas between us broad have roared
since days of auld lang syne.

For days of auld lang syne, my dear,
for days of auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for days of auld lang syne.

5. And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for days of auld lang syne.

For days of auld lang syne, my dear,
for days of auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for days of auld lang syne.
