First verse:
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 jo,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

Second verse:
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 lang syne.

Chorus

Third verse:
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

Fourth verse:
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

Fifth verse:
And there’s a hand,
my trusty fiere!
and gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak’ a right gude-willie waught,
for auld lang syne.

What actually ‘Auld Lang Syne’ means?
The most precise plain English translation of the Auld Lang Syne’s popular title is ‘Old since a long time ago’, or ‘For bygone eras’.
The actual melody is intelligent in nature, and is essentially around two companions making up for lost time over a beverage or two, their kinship having been long and every so often removed.
The words were composed by Scottish writer Robert Burns in 1788, yet Burns himself uncovered at the hour of making it that he had gathered the words subsequent to tuning in to the section of an elderly person on his movements, guaranteeing that his variant of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ denoted the first occasion when it had been officially recorded.
Be that as it may, a prior anthem by James Watson, named ‘Old Long Syne’, dates as far back as 1711, and utilization of the title expression can be found in sonnets from as right on time as the seventeenth century, explicitly works by Robert Ayton and Allan Ramsay.
