206. Auld Lang Syne

1 Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never bro't 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 tak' a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

2 We twa ha'e ran aboot the braes,
And pu’d the gowans fine,
We’ve wander’d mony a weary foot
Sin' auld lang syne. [Refrain]

3 And here’s a hand, my trusty frien',
And gie's a hand o’ thine;
We’ll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
for auld lang syne. [Refrain]
