Mairi Campbell - Auld Lang Syne @Scots Trad Music Awards

The Cast (Mairi Campbell, David Francis) sing Auld Lang Syne at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards, 2008.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to min'?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
For auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my jo
For auld lang syne
We'll tak' ae cup o'kindness yet
For auld lang syne

We twa hae rin aboot the braes
And pud the gowans fine
And we've wander'd monys the weary foot
Sin' auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl'd i' the burn
Frae mornin' sun till dine
But the seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

And here's a haund, my trusty fiere
And gie's a haund o' thine
And we'll tak' ae richt guid wullie - waught
For auld lang syne.
