Auld Lang Syne {Days Gone By}



Should old acquaintances be forgotten,
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintances be forgotten,
And days of long ago!




For times gone by, my dear
For times gone by,
We will take a cup of kindness yet
For times gone by.





We two have fun about the hillsides
And pulled the daisies fine,
But we have wandered many a weary food
For times gone by.




We two have paddled (waded) in the strean
From noon until dinner time,
But seas between us broad have roared
Since times gone by.



And there is a hand, my trusty friend,
And give us a hand in yours,
And we will take a goodwill drink (of ale)
For times gone by!



And surely you will pay for your pint,
And surely I will pay for mine!
And we will take a cup of kindness yet
For times gone by!

beautiful . just beautiful.

LOVE this song and not just because Will loves to sing it and not just because it reminds me of the final scene in It's a Wonderful Life... :)

(was just thinking about you today and realizing I need to get back to you. can't wait to see what you're able to do for us!)

I look at your pics (like the one of the sheltie) and I wonder why I don't see them in the I Heart Faces contests. So many of your amazing pics never make it in, but I see winners EVERYWHERE. And Happy New Year to you, too!

I love that song. There is a version from Sex And The City, the first movie that is the best version I have ever heard.
