Auld Lang Syne is the traditional tune to ring in the new year. I can never remember the lyrics to the song. According to the blog Right Pundits, here's a little trivia about Auld Lang Syne:

The song is of Scottish origin and the literal translation of Auld Lang Syne (Syne pronounced sign) is “old long since.” It is better translated “days gone by” or “long long ago,” or even “once upon a time.”

Most people sing the first verse and chorus of the song! If you want to see some of the other verses and other trivia about Auld Lang Syne, visit Right Pundits.

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

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!
