Auld Lang Syne

What is New Year without singing Auld Lang Syne right? An how about no other than Mariah Carey will lead the choir. Loosely translated, Auld Lang Syne means "for old times" or "old long since". That's why it is commonly sang during New Year - as a way to say farewell to the year that has gone by.

Auld Lang Syne is now a much celebrated practice in America and all over the world. A guy named Guy Lombardo popularized Auld Lang Syne in his radio and television broadcasts during New Year in 1929. Auld Lang Syne is a Scots poem written by Robert Burns in 1788. And so, you will find below, the Auld Lang Syne lyrics. Happy New Year everyone!

Auld Lang Syne

Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind ?

Should old acquaintance be forgot, and old lang syne ?


For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,

We'll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!

and surely I’ll buy mine!

And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne.

We two have run about the slopes, and picked the daisies fine;

But we’ve wandered many a weary foot, since auld lang syne.

We two have paddled in the stream, from morning sun till dine;

But seas between us broad have roared, since auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand my trusty friend!

And give us a hand o’ thine!

And we’ll take a right good-will draught, for auld lang syne.
