Die Roten Rosen – Auld Lang Syne

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 5:36 pm by LynxLee


I remember when I was 5 years old, I had a performance for the kindergarten. That was the first time EVER in my life that I had a lipstick on. =P Holding hands & performing to all the parents & teachers.. Haha..

Anyway, this song is sooo familiar to many but yet, most people don’t know much about this song. It’s actually a poem by Robert Burns & is in Scots; literally translated “Old Long Since” . For more information, read here.

Cheers,
Dan

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

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

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

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
And surely I’ll buy mine !
And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have run about the hills,
and pulled the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine (dinner time) ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS
