Auld lang syne

by Al Lewis
(Pietermaritzburg, South Africa)

Robert Burns, the famous Scottish poet, first scribed the lyrics for this tune. Though some of the poem was traditional and as Burns said when he submitted the work the Scots Muical Museum “The following song, an old song, of the olden times, and which has never been in print, nor even in manuscript until I took it down from an old man". The song is used to celebrate the start of a New Year in many, mianly English-speaking countries, and is sung at funerals, graduations, and as a farewell or ending to other occasions. The international Boy Scout youth movement, in many countries, uses it as a close to jamborees and other functions.

These are the lyrics for this popular tune :

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

CHORUS:
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.

CHORUS

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine† ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

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.

CHORUS
