Happy New Year

Since many of us will be singing Auld Lang Syne tonight, I thought I'd post an English Translation so you all know what you're singing about.

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and days of old long since?

For old long since, my dear,
for old long since,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for old long since.

And surely you'll buy your pint cup!
and surely I'll buy mine!
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
for days of old long since.

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
But we've wandered many a weary foot,
since days of old long since.

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till diner;
But seas between us broad have roared
since days of old long since.

For old long since, my dear,
for old long since,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for old long since.

And there's a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o' thine!
And we'll take a right good-will draught,
for old long since.

For old long since, my dear,
for old long since,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for old long since.
