Christmas songs...

I can hear everyone *groaning*...Christmas music, already?

I could seriously listen to it all year long...it makes my heart happy!  So, I think I will be blogging a lot over the next few months about songs...

And tonights edition:  Auld Lang Syne -  Come on, people! I know you have always wanted to know the words, as well as what it means....

it means, "to days gone by" or "to the good old days"...

if you look at the lyrics, it says: well, heck!  let's sit down and have a beer, and celebrate all the stuff we've done over the years....

..sounds like a great time to me! 

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


CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of 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 slopes,
and picked 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;
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.
