Thanks, it's much better when I know what the song really says.

Modern English Translation of Auld Lang Syne

Should old acquaintances be forgotten
and never remembered
Should old acquaintances be
forgotten
and days long ago

Chorus
For days long ago , my dear,for days long ago!
We'll drink a cup of kindness yet
For days long ago.

And surely you'll have your pint tankard
and surely I'll have mine
And we'll drink a cup of kindness yet
for days long ago

Chorus
We two have run about the hills
And pulled the daisies fine
But we've wandered many a weary mile
Since the days long ago.

Chorus
We two have paddled in the stream
From morning sun tell dinner time
But the broad seas have roared between us
Since the days long ago

Chorus
So take my hand my trusty friend
And give me your hand
And we will take a Hearty drink together
In memory of those days now past.

Since no one has commented on the Modern Version of Auld Lang Syne...( and I typed it all using the two fingers method ( You all must have read it before.

Twenty out of ten for your effort, Dove

I didn't comment because I KNOW what the words mean! But thank you for your efforts.

Dove

Thanks and i commend you on your effort. Of course, I know you always give from the heart. Hope you and yours doing okay? Haven't read many comments. Sorry. Did you get to sing this with heart? Your version sounds more familiar from the shows on tv. Did you get to see Dick Clark on New Years? Felt sorry for him. Guess like the doctors don't want to quit. I think Regis and him are th same age? I didn't see Regis but I didn't want to miss Dick Clark. Thanks again Dove for your time and efforts. Just think of you nd hope all is well.Or pretty well.

Happy

So far so good? That is great news! I am keeping you both in my thoughts. I always hope you will not let life get the best of you no matter what it makes you jump through. Already had some bad news for 2006 but have to get passed it. Give my best to your better half and of course Dove. She doesn't want nothing to go wrong either. Thanks again for taking the time to reply to my request. I havealways heard it sung but never remembered the words. The best to you both 2006!
