Auld Lang Syne

Happy 2009 everybody!!! This a cappella song is by Straight No Chaser from their album Holiday Spirits. Buy their album from iTunes or be a fan of them in Facebook.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never (be) brought 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 take a cup of kindness yet,
For days of auld lang syne.

And here’s a hand, my trusty friend.
And gie’s a hand o’ thine.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
For days of auld lang syne.

From Wikipedia:

“Auld Lang Syne” is a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. It is well known in many English-speaking countries and is often sung to celebrate the start of the new year at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day. […] The song’s (Scots) title may be translated into English literally as “old long since”, or more idiomatically, “long long ago” or “days gone by”.

Ho ho ho~ The day is finally here… It’s been a roller coaster year, no? But at least we made it through… 🙂
