Happy New Year!!!


Ben was busy looking up the words to a familiar song.  I copy and paste it here for your pleasure! For those of you who choose to, raise a right guid willie-waught with us at midnight!!!!

Robert Burns: AULD LANG SYNE



CHORUS

For auld syne, my dear, [old long ago]

For auld lang syne,

We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,

For auld lang syne.



Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

And never brought to min'?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

And days o' lang syne?



We twa hae run about the braes, [hillsides]

And pou'd the gowans fine; [pulled/daisies]

But we've wander'd mony a weary foot,

Sin auld lang syne.



We twa hae paidl't i' the burn, [waded/stream]

Frae morning sun till dine, [noon/dinner-time]

But seas between us braid hae roar'd [broad]

Sin auld lang syne.



And there's a hand, my trusty fiere,

And gie's a hand o' thine,

And we'll tak a right guid willie-waught, [goodwill drink]

For auld lang syne.



And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp, [pay for]

And surely I'll be mine;

And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet

For auld lang syne.
