Should old acquaintances be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld Lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

And there’s a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie’s a hand o thine
And we’ll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang sine

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld Lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

Happy New Year~sparky

Auld Lang Syne Translated

From :- http://www.tamoshanter.free-online.co.uk/Auldls.htm

Should old friends be forgotten
and never remembered
Should old friends be forgotten
and the days they shared together

Chorus

For days now in the past, my dear
For days now in the past
We'll drink a toast of kind remembrance
For days now in the past

You can pay for your pint tankard
and I will pay for mine
We'll drink a toast of kind remembrance
For days now in the past

We two have run about the hillsides
and pulled wild daisies
but now we are far apart in distance
From those days now in the past

We two have paddled in the stream
from morning untill noon
but oceans now lie between us
since those days now in the past

So take my hand, my trusty friend
and give me your hand
and we will take a hearty drink together
In memory of those days now in the past

Robert Burns

Happy New Year to you all!

May 2003 bring you and your families peace, happiness and good fortune.

Don't worry too much if you can't make head nor tail of it -- Us "Sassenachs" living in England often don't understand Scottish words either! [Linked Image]
