Full lyrics:

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

and never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

and days of 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.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup!

and surely I’ll be mine!

And we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,

for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We twa hae run about the braes,

and pou’d the gowans fine;

But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,

sin’ auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,

frae morning sun till dine;

But seas between us braid hae roar’d

sin’ auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere!

and gie’s a hand o’ thine!

And we’ll tak’ a right gude-willie waught,

for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And if you’re not feeling very adventurous on this New Year’s, then below you can find a full modern English translation (for shame).

Full lyrics (English):

Should old acquaintance be forgot,

and never brought to mind?

Should old acquaintance be forgot,

and days of long ago?

CHORUS:

For days of long ago, my dear,

for days of long ago,

we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,

for days of long ago.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!

and surely I’ll buy mine!

And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,

for days of long ago.

CHORUS

We two have run about the slopes,

and picked the daisies fine;

But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,

since days of long ago.

CHORUS

We two have paddled in the stream,

from morning sun till dine;

But seas between us broad have roared

since days of long ago.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand my trusty friend!

And give me a hand o’ thine!

And we’ll take a right good-will draught,

for days of long ago.

CHORUS
