An niver brocht tae mynd?

Auld Lang Syne

Shoud auld acquentance be forgot,
An niver brocht tae mynd?
Shoud auld acquentance be forgot,
An auld lang syne!

Owerwird:

For auld lang syne, ma dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup o kyndness yit,
For auld lang syne.

An shuirly ye’ll be your pint stowp!
An shuirly A’ll be mine!
An we’ll tak a cup o kyndness yit,
For auld lang syne.

We twa hae rin aboot the braes,
An pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’v wandert mony a weary fit
Sin auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidelt in the burn,
Frae mornin sun till dine;
But seas atween us braid haes raired
Sin auld lang syne.

An thare’s a haund, ma trusty fere!
An gie’s a haund o thine!
An we’ll tak a richt guid-willy waucht,
For auld lang syne.
===========================

Anglicized translation:

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

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

CHORUS:
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 buy your pint cup !
And surely I’ll buy mine !
And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have run about the hills,
and pulled the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine (dinner time) ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

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.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
