What does Auld Lang Syne mean – and what are the lyrics? – World News


#With most of the country practically in lockdown, #New #Year’s #Eve celebrations are going to be quiet this year.

#Pubs and restaurants are closed, indoor gatherings are banned, and firework displays will not go ahead as normal.

#But that doesn’t mean people won’t be celebrating the end of 2020, and looking cautiously forward to whatever 2021 may bring.

#Households and support bubbles can crack the champagne, count down the hours to midnight, and kiss when the hour strikes 12.

#And we can expect to hear choruses of #Robert #Burns’ famous farewell, #Auld #Lang #Syne.

#For auld lang syne, my jo,

for auld long sight,

we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,

for auld long sight.

#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 long sight.

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.

#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.

#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
