Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should old 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

And there's a hand, my trusty fiere
And gie's a hand o' thine
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For 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

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

Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should old 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

Auld Lang Syne was a Scottish folk song from the 1600's or earlier. Around 1788, Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote his version, which is the one we know today (with a lot of fun Scottish words, for example fiere - friend).

The song became so popular in Scotland that Scottish immigrants sang it wherever they went, spreading the song around the world. Many people use to call this song Old long ago, that means the same thing.

Auld Lang Syne is sung for New Year's Eve around the world, especially in English-speaking countries. It can be sung all year (at graduations for example), but is definitely most popular around Christmas time.
