Thursday Theme Song - Auld Lang Syne

Auld Lang Syne
A Scots poem written by Robert Burns (1788)

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
 and never brought to mind?

Should old acquaintance be forgot, 
and old lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup! 
and surely I’ll buy mine!

And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
 for auld lang syne.

We two have run about the slopes, 
and picked 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-will draught,
 for auld lang syne.
