“We’ll Tak a Cup o’ Kindness Yet”

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
  And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
  And 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.

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, ...

We twa hae run about the braes
  And pou'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd many a weary fitt,
Sin auld lang syne.

     For auld lang syne, my jo, ...

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

     For auld lang syne, my jo,...

And there's a hand, my trusty fiere!
  And gie's a hand o'thine!
And we'll tak a right gude-willie-waught,
  For auld lang syne

     For auld lang syne, my jo, ...


- Robert Burns, 'Auld Lang Syne'
