Net: Words to Auld Lang Syne

December 31st, 2002 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

In time for the New Years Celebrations, here’s the complete words of Auld Lang Syne as written by Robert Burns:

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

We twa hae run aboot the braes
And pu’d the gowans fine.
We’ve wandered mony a weary foot,
Sin’ auld lang syne.
Sin’ auld lang syne, my dear,
Sin’ auld lang syne,
We’ve wandered mony a weary foot,
Sin’ auld ang syne.

We twa hae sported i’ the burn,
From morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roared
Sin’ auld lang syne.
Sin’ auld lang syne, my dear,
Sin’ auld lang syne.
But seas between us braid hae roared
Sin’ auld lang syne.

And ther’s a hand, my trusty friend,
And gie’s a hand o’ thine;
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,A
For auld lang syne.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".

    – Slade’s way!

    (Everyone can sing this version words or not!)

    Should old acquaintance be forgot
    And never brought to mind?
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot
    And the days o’ lang syne!

    For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne.
    We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet
    For 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.

    (Air Guitar or arms aloft)

    Walk on, Walk on
    With hope in your heart,
    And you’ll never walk alone
    You’ll never walk alone!

    Walk on, Walk on
    With hope in your heart,
    And you’ll never walk alone
    You’ll never walk alone!

    (Arms down, cross arms & shake hands…)
