V. BACCHANALIAN AND SOCIAL
No. 234. Should auld acquaintance be forgot.
(Thomson's Copy.) Tune: Auld lang syne Thomson's Scotish Airs, 1799, No. 68.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' lang syne ?
Chorus. For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld lang syne, We'll tak a cup o1 kindness yet, For auld lang syne.
We twa ha'e run about the braes,
And pu'd the gowans fine ; But we've wander'.d mony a weary foot,
Sin' auld lang syne.
We twa ha'e paidlet i' the burn,
Frae morning sun 'till dine: But seas between us braid ha'e roar'd
Sin' auld lang syne.
And there's a hand, my trusty feire,
And gie 's a hand o' thine ; And we'll tak a right gude-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.
And surely ye'll be your pint-stoup,
And surely I'll be mine ; And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
