Auld Lang Syne

Rating: 3.1
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

Chorus - For auld land 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!

It is not possible to explain the cadence, grace and mood of the poem in words. It's " sui generis" .

Probably the most often sung song in the English language after Happy Birthday. Even Scots like me would have difficulty telling you what a few of the words mean exactly, but the gist of it is that good friendships last forever.

Robert Burns was a well versed Scottish poet capable of performing nice lyrical poems as the present one!

I didn't know that the words to the popular song were taken from this poem by Robert Burns. The words to the song are slightly different, as I recall. As for the other verses, the reason nobody sings them: Nobody these days knows what they mean!
