Auld Lang Syne

In English speaking countries around the world, it is popular to celebrate the New Year with singing Scotland’s Bobby Burns’ Auld Lang Syne.

The first verse and chorus of Auld Lang Syne is the common one sung at the stroke of midnight-

Should Auld acquaintance be forgot,

And never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

And auld lang syne.

chorus:

For auld lang syne, my jo,

For auld lang syne,

We’ll tak a cup o’kindness yet,

For auld lang syne.
