(KTVI) – It’s that time of year when we all get together to celebrate the New Year and try to remember the words to the traditional New Year’s song “Auld Lang Syne.” But do you know the words? We’re not sure that  John and Randi know them.  Take a look.

Here are the lyrics:

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

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

A Scottish poet drafted the song in 1788 after hearing it warbled by an old man.  Auld Lang Syne translates to something like 'For Long Ago', though there are many variations on the phrasing.
