Please be reminded that the library will be CLOSED this Saturday for New Year’s Eve.
And in order to assist any fellow parties (or maybe more appropriately: partyers), who like myself have always wondered what the actual words to “that-song-people-in-movies-sometimes-sing-on-New Year’s Eve”, the entire lyrics to this infamous Scottish tune/ poem are as follows:
Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never 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 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 fere! And gie’s a hand o’ thine! And we’ll tak a right gude-willie waught, For auld lang syne.
