Did You Know: Auld Lang Syne Lyrics

English translated version:

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

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.


We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.


We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.


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.

Random Acts of Kindness

“I paid for the family behind me in the drive thru at McDonalds. I told the cashier to tell them Merry Christmas. They looked as if they needed the help. Hope they enjoyed it.”

“I made a pillow for my mom and she was so amazed i did it on my own cause i am10″

“I have become friends with an elderly couple at my church. The older man has leukemia and is not able to get out much. When we had a xmas banquet at church I had a video guy tape people from church giving him a Merry Xmas greeting. When he saw the video he was so excited. His wife was very grateful.”

People are great! Pass it on – for ideas, follow the lead of the people who’ve entered their doings at Random Acts of Kindness
