Auld Lang Syne

The turn of the year is always a time to take stock of the past and look ahead to the future.  My last 5 years have seen a lot of change, personally and professionally, good and bad.  In September 2006, I started with Night Writers and tomorrow, January 2, is the 5th anniversary of the creation of Gabriel's Horn, which has really taken off this year.

Thank you to all who have made the years good!


The Poem by Robert Burns


Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
And fully past and gone
Is thy sweet heart now grown so cold
That loving breast of thine,
That thou canst never once reflect 
On old lang syne?

CHORUS:
On old lang syne my Jo
On old lang syne
That thou canst never once reflect
On old lang syne?


The Lyrics as We Know Them Today:

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

CHORUS

For auld lang syne, my dear
for auld lang syne
we'll take a cup of kindness yet
for auld lang syne

And surely you'll buy your pint cup
And surely I'll buy mind
And we'll take a cup of kindness yet
for auld lang syne

CHORUS...NEXT VERSE...

We two have run about the slopes
And picked the daisies fine
But we've wandered many a weary foot
Since auld lang syne

CHORUS...NEXT VERSE...

We two have paddled int he stream
From morning sun till dine
But seas between us broad have roared
Since auld lang syne

CHORUS...NEXT VERSE...

And there's a hand my trust friend
And give me a hand o' thine
And we'll take a right good will draught
for auld lang syne
