Should auld acquaintance be forgot, [auld = old]
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne. [auld lang syne = old long
Since]

Chorus
For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne.
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For the sake of old lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes, [twa = two; braes =
Slope of a small hill]
And pulled the gowans fine; [gowan = wild daisy]
We've wandered many a weary fit, [fit = footstep]
Since auld lang syne.
For auld...

We twa hae paddled in the burn, [burn = small stream]

Frae morning sun 'til dine; [frae = from; dine =
Dinner]
But seas between us broad have roared
Since auld lang syne.

Aye and surely you'll be your pint stowp! [pint stowp =
A description of a beer-belly]
And surely I'll be mine!
We'll take a right gude-willie waught, [gude-willie
Waught = a good will drink]
For the sake of auld lang syne.
For auld...

And here's a hand, my trusty fere! [fere = friend]
And gie's a hand o' thine! [gie's = give me]
We'll take cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld...

For auld lang syne.
