Auld Lang Syne


'Auld Lang Syne' can be interpreted as 'old long since' or more loosely as 'long long ago' or 'days gone by.' The song is traditionally sung by English speakers on New Year's Eve to usher in the new year and at other sentimental occasions.
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 long syne.

    On Old long syne my Jo,
    On Old long syne,
    That thou canst never once reflect,
    On Old long syne.
