Happy 2011

This is one of the most beautiful versions of Auld Lang Syne¹ I’ve heard. Please enjoy it and have a wonderful 2011!


Auld Lang Syne – Robert Burns
Sung by: Mairi Campbell

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought tae mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
For auld lang syne?²

For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o kindness yet
For auld lang syne?

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I’ll be mine,
And we’ll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o kindness yet
For auld lang syne?

We twa hae run aboot n the braes
And pou’d the gowans fine.
And we’ve wandered many a weary fit,
Sin’ auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o kindness yet
For auld lang syne?

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine,
But the seas between us braid hae roared
Sin’ auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o kindness yet
For auld lang syne?

¹Auld Lang Syne: Days gone by
²For auld lang syne: For old times sake

  1. In Spanish, the lyrics for that song are about friends saying goodbye. I’ve never had the chance to read the original lyrics until today.
    All the best and best wishes for 2011, dear Isobel!

    I first heard this version of Auld Lang Syne back in 2010 and it has remained my favourite so I’m re-publishing this post for this New Year’s Eve. Happy 2015 to one and all! May this year bring you love, peace, and happiness. xo
