Burns Original

Auld Lang Syne

Chorus.
And for auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne,
1.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' auld lang syne.
2.
And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp!
And surely I'll be mine!
And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
3.
We twa hae run about the braes
And pu'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd mony a weary foot
Sin auld lang syne.
4.
We twa hae paidl'd i' the burn,
Frae mornin' sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.
5.
And there's a hand, my trusty fiere!
And gie's a hand o' thine!
And we'll tak a right guid willy waught,
For auld lang syne.

Standard English Translation

Old Long Past

Chorus.
And for old long past, my joy (sweetheart),
For old long past,
We will take a cup of kindness yet,
For old long past,

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And days of old long past.

And surely you will pay for your pint-vessel!
And surely I will pay for mine!
And we will take a cup of kindness yet,
For old long past.

We two have run about the hillsides
And pulled the wild daisies fine;
But we have wandered many a weary foot
Since old long past.

We two have paddled in the stream,
From morning sun till noon;
But seas between us broad have roared
Since old long past.

And there is a hand, my trusty friend!
And give me a hand of yours!
And we will take a right good-will drink,
For old long past.

Thanks to worldburnsclub for the full and translated bits!

(Or if your like me and can't remember the entire tune ;))
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days for auld lang syne
For auld lang syne my dear for auld lang syne
We'll tak a cup of kindess yet for auld lang syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot...


To celebrate a successful completion on our inspection we went on a family cruise to Maui. Personally I'm not all that gung ho about being here but it is a welcome break to working for 12 hours a day for the last couple months. The inspection itself was kinda a let down to tell the truth. With everyone acting like it was the end of the world, the inspectors came about and kinda patted us on the head and left people with that WTF? feeling.



Yes I am geocaching, yes I am having fun...heheheh.

Pub Lyrics
Captain America


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


CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for the sake of auld lang syne.
Let's have a drink or maybe two !
Or maybe three or four !
Or five or six or seven or eight,
and maybe even more !


CHORUS ×2
When it gets to closing time,
And you still want more,
I know a pub in Invemess
That never shuts its door!


CHORUS ×2
