Auld Lang Syne

Here’s an old song that many sing for New Year’s. It’s called “Auld Lang Syne” – it’s Scottish English for “old long since,” or “long long ago,” “days gone by,” or “old times.” Go ahead and listen to three different versions:

The song was originally written as a poem by Robert Burns in 1788, and it was later put to music. Here are the lyrics:

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.

Have a Happy and Safe New Year! Remember, classes start again on Wednesday!
