Happy New Year 2009!

Happy New Year 2009!

Isn't this picture just perfect? Yep, I thought so too!

Did you know? Did you know this song originated from the Scots!? No wonder I couldn't understand the lyrics as a child. But don't be left out of the fun, here are the words of The English Version


Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forgot, and days of auld lang syne?
*
CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for days of 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 days auld lang syne.
*
CHORUS
*
We two have run about the slopes, and picked the daisies fine; But we’ve wandered many a weary foot, since auld lang syne.
*
CHORUS
*
We two have paddled in the stream, from morning sun till dine; But seas between us broad have roared since auld lang syne.
*
CHORUS
*
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.


~God Bless~

The Sex and The City soundtrack has a really nice version of this song on it, you'd probably enjoy it because they sing in Gaelic in part of it. It's just lurrvley.
