By the way: This is a different melody than the one you’re probably used to, but as I understand it, this is the tune that Burns had in mind when he wrote the words down in the eighteenth century (and in this performance, there are also a couple of verses sung in Gaelic. so if you all of a sudden don’t understand what they’re singing, don’t worry [probably]).



Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to min'?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
For auld lang syne?
______

For auld lang syne, my jo
For auld lang syne
We'll tak' ae cup o'kindness yet
For auld lang syne
______

We twa hae rin aboot the braes
And pud the gowans fine
And we've wander'd monys the weary foot
Sin' auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl'd i' the burn
Frae mornin' sun till dine
But the seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

And here's a haund, my trusty fiere
And gie's a haund o' thine
And we'll tak' ae richt guid wullie - waught
For auld lang syne
