Auld Lang Syne Poem Translated   Leave a comment

Traditional Song Modern English Translation
Auld Lang Syne  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 o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae 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 hae paidl’t in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin’ auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie’s a hand o’ thine,
And we’ll tak a right guid 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!

Times Gone By  Should old acquaintances be forgotten, And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintances be forgotten, And days of long ago!

Chorus:
For times gone by, my dear
For times gone by,
We will take a cup of kindness yet
For times gone by.

We two have run about the hillsides
And pulled the daisies fine,
But we have wandered many a weary foot
For times gone by.

We two have paddled (waded) in the stream; From noon until dinner time,
But seas between us broad have roared Since times gone by.

And there is a hand, my trusty friend, And give us a hand of yours,
And we will take a goodwill drink (of ale)
For times gone by!

And surely you will pay for your pint,
And surely I will pay for mine!
And we will take a cup of kindness yet
For times gone by!

I was wondering today about the lyrics to this song; I can usually remember the first too lines and then I just start lalalala-ing my way through the rest.  So I googled it and actually found the translation from the original Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788…and since I am part Scottish it would be good to know the song, right? 

By the waytoday is the LAST DAY for you to check out my Savvy Magazine Photo Shoot page and vote for me.  I hope that you will take the time to click on the link below and cast your vote.  Have a wonderful and prosperous New Year!

I’m networking to get help…This is the last day of the contest that I am in and I could really use your vote.

Hi, my name is Hallie and I have entered a Savvy Magazine photo shoot contest. I know you don’t know me but the winners are chosen by the public and if the public doesn’t know they need to vote…well, you guessed it, no one votes! Could you take a moment and look at my photos and decide if you would vote for me or not? There are over 1000 of us trying to get to those top ten positions. If you don’t think I am top ten material scroll through the small icons to the right of mine and pick one of those ladies! One little click of your finger can help make somebodies dream a reality!
