auld lang syne lyrics – chris isaak

——————————————————————————–
should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and ne’er brought to mind?
should auld acquaintance be forgot
and auld lang syne?
chorus:
for auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet
for auld lang syne.
and surely, ye’ll be your pint stowp!
and surely i’ll be mine!
and we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
(chorus)
we twa hae run aboot the braes
and pou’d the gowans fine;
but we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot
sin’ auld lang syne.
(chorus)
we two hae paidled i’ the burn,
frae mornin’ sun till dine;
but seas between us braid hae roar’d
sin’ auld lang syne.
(chorus)
and here’s a hand, my trusty fiere,
and gie’s a hand o’ thine;
and we’ll tak’ a right gude-w*lly waught,
for auld lang syne
(chorus)
two verses written by robert burns, the others are traditional.
described by burns as ‘a song of olden times’
