Auld Lang Syne Song

Auld Lang Syne is traditionally sung at the end of the old and the very beginning of the new year. “For auld lang syne”, loosely translated, means “for old times sake”. The song is used to mark endings and new beginnings. For that reason, in the Scouting movement it is sometimes used to close big events, such as jamborees.

The lyrics are shown below. You can hear the song and melody here.

Auld Lang Syne Song

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
