Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brocht 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

We twa ha'e run aboot the braes,
And pu'd the gowans fine
But we've wandered mony a weary foot
Sin' 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

We twa ha'e paidled i' the burn
Frae mornin' sun till dine
But seas between us braid ha'e roared
Sin' 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

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.

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne
