Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought tae mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and 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.

We twa hae run aboot the braes and pu'd the gowans fine
But we've wander'd mony a weary fit sin' auld lang syne

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn frae morning sun till dine
But seas between us braid ha’e roar'd sin’ auld lang syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought tae mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and auld lang syne
