Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And auld lang syne! What does that mean anyway?
Auld Lang Syne is based on a Scottish poem, attributed to Scottish poet and lyricist Robert Burns in 1788. Auld Lang Syne translates to "Old Long Since," and more roughly it means "long, long ago" or "days gone by." There are many verses to the traditional song and the deeper meaning lies within these stanzas. These verses expound on the glories of friendship, fellowship and hope for the future, while still honoring days gone by.
You can find Auld Lang Syne on the following CDs, plus many Christmas albums.
