Should auld acquaintance be forgot Robert Burns


Auld Lang Syne.ogg

Should auld acquaintance 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.
And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup !
 and surely I’ll be mine !
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
 for auld lang syne.
CHORUS
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.
CHORUS
We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
 frae morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
 sin’ auld lang syne.
CHORUS
And there’s a hand my trusty fiere !
 and gies a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll tak a right gude-willie waught,
 for auld lang syne.
CHORUS
