Lombardo and his Royal Canadians first performed the song on January 1, 1929 at NYCs Roosevelt Hotel.  They’d continue to play the song every year until 1976, via live broadcast.  And since then, it’s their version you hear after that famous ball drops in Times Square…whether you’re dancing the night away or fighting to stay awake on the couch. Here they are from a recording made in 1939. 

 Impress your friends and fellow revelers by memorizing the lyrics…Thanks for listening to Sound Beat in 2011. And, of course, we’ll see you next year… 

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for 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 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.

CHORUS
