Auld Lang Syne (V)

Should auld acqaintance be furgot,
And never brought tae mind?
Should auld acquaintance be furgot,
And days of auld lang syne.

Aye Fur auld lang syne, my jo,
Fur auld lang syne;
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
Fur the days of auld lang syne.

We twa ha’e paidl’d in’ the burn,
Fae mornin’ sun till dine;
But seas between us, braid ha’e roar’d
Sin’ auld lang syne.

Aye Fur auld lang syne, my jo,
Fur auld lang syne;
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
Fur the days of auld lang syne.

Should auld acqaintance be furgot,
And niver brought tae mind?
Should auld acquaintance be furgot,
And days of auld lang syne.

Fur auld lang syne, my dear,
Fur auld lang syne;
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
Fur auld lang syne.

And here’s a hand, my trusty fere,
And gie’s a hoult o’ thine;
We’ll tak’a right guid-willie waught
Fur auld lang syne.

Fur auld lang syne, my dear,
Fur auld lang syne;
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
Fur the days of auld lang syne. (x2)
