Robert Burns' "Auld Lang Syne" Performed by Rod Paterson, Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, and Martyn Bennett


Something from the Transatlantic Sessions to see off Anno Domini MMXVI, Annus Mirabilis
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    and never brought to mind?
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    and auld lang syne*?

    For auld lang syne, my jo,
    for auld lang syne,
    we'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
    for auld lang syne.
    We twa hae run about the braes,
    and pou'd the gowans fine;
    But we've wander'd mony a weary fit,
    sin' auld lang syne.

    We twa hae paidl'd in the burn,
    frae morning sun till dine;
    But seas between us braid hae roar'd
    sin' auld lang syne.
