Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot?

With New Year looming, are you ready to sing Auld Lang Syne, or will you be one of the many who don't really know the words, let alone what they mean? Well, help is at hand at worldburnsclub.com. There you will find both the five verse poem and the two verse song. Both include an English translation of the original Scots. The site also includes information about the origins of the poem which pre-dates Rabbie Burns by a couple of centuries .

I'm certainly looking forward to a guid-willie waught on Friday night. Happy New Year to you!
