Auld Lang Syne - An old Scotch tune

With New Year's Day approaching fast, it is time again to sing "Auld Lang Syne". An old Scotch tune, "Auld Lang Syne" is sung at the stroke of midnight in almost every English-speaking country in the world to bring in the new year. Written partially by Robert Burns in the 1700's, it was first published in 1796 after his death. In keeping with the mood of the New Year festivities, here we bring you the lyrics for this famous New Year song. We also have here a midi file of 'Auld Lang Syne' which you can download very easily and hear in Windows Media Player. So gear up with us for the New Year celebrations and hum the lines of 'Auld Lang Syne' as the clock strikes twelve on the final night of the year.

Check out the lyrics of 'Auld Lang Syne', the famous New Year's Eve song:

Auld Lang Syne

Should old acquaintance be forgot?
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot?
And auld Lang Syne?


For auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld Lang Syne.
And surely you'll get your pint mug!
And surely I'll get mine!
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld Lang Syne.


We two have run about the hills,
And pulled the daisies fine;
But we've wandered many a weary foot,
Since auld Lang Syne.


We two have paddled in the stream,
From morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
Since auld Lang Syne.


And there's a hand my trusty friend!
And give us a hand o' thine!
And we'll take a right good-friendly draught,
for auld Lang Syne.
