New Year’s Eve and Auld Lang Syne

Hiya ladies! We are only less than an hour away from 2011.  I hope that you ladies are having a safe and joyous New Year’s Eve.  I’m having a very low key celebration at home with my boyfriend. 

Earlier tonight, I looked up the song, Auld Lang Syne, because I realized I didn’t know all of the words.   Auld Lang Syne was written by Robert Burns in 1741 and is sung at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day.  However, despite the song’s popularity, it has been described as the song that nobody knows.  Auld Lang Syne literally means “old long ago” or simply, “the good old days."  So, I thought I should add the lyrics to the original Scottish version just for fun and for anyone else out there that didn’t know all of the words.  Enjoy!

Auld Lang Syne by Robert Burns

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

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne

We twa hae run aboot the braes
And pou'd the gowans fine;
we've wander'd mony a weary foot
Sin' auld lang syne

We two hae paidled i' the burn,
Frae mornin' sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin' auld lang syne

And here's a hand, my trusty friend,
And gie's a hand o' thine;
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne

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

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne

I hope that everyone has a Happy, Safe & Prosperous New Year!
