“Auld Lang Syne” is a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 from earlier versions and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. “Auld Lang Syne” literally means “old long ago,” or simply, “the good old days.”

lyrics: Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
And here’s a hand, my trusty friend
And gie’s a hand o’ thine
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne
