New Years 2015

With the New Year upon us I want to take this opportunity to wish every one of you out there the very best for the coming year.I started off the New Year at exactly midnight on New Year’s Eve by singing Auld Lang Syne. We’ll all be singing it while most of us won’t have a clue what the title actually means!

 

So, just for fun, I looked up the song online to find out its history. I learned that Auld Lang Syne is a traditional Scottish song. The version we know today was written (in part at least) by Robert Burns in the 1700s. The title refers to “old long ago,” or the good old days, as we would say today. I don’t want you to stumble around when it comes time to sing it, so I’m passing along to you the lyrics. Have a great year in 2015 and don’t forget to break a resolution or two!

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

 

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne?
And here’s a hand, my trusty friend , and gie’s a hand o’ thine,
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
