For The Sake Of Aud Lang Syne. Written-By – Burns, Ball, Graff.
The line about for auld lang syne is essentially, for (the sake of) old times. For the record, it never says the totally nonsensical for the sake of auld lang syne. Beyond the words themselves, there’s even less agreement about exactly how the tune came to be a New Year’s Eve tradition. The song originated as a poem, but it probably wasn’t written by Robert Burns as is commonly believed-at least not entirely.
It is well known in many countries, especially in the English-speaking world, its traditional use being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve. By extension, it is also sung at funerals, graduations, and as a farewell or ending to other occasions
Auld Lang Syne is a song which thrilled the soul of Robert Burns in the 1780s. Look at this soul fostering song. The phrase 'auld lang syne' roughly translates as 'for old times' sake', and the song is all about preserving old friendships and looking back over the events of the year. It is sung all over the world, evoking a sense of belonging and fellowship, tinged with nostalgia. It has long been a much-loved Scottish tradition to sing the song just before midnight. Everyone stands in a circle holding hands, then at the beginning of the final verse ('And there's a hand my trusty friend') they cross their arms across their bodies so that their left hand is holding.
Auld Lang Syne Lyrics. Should auld acquaintance be forgot And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot And auld lang syne. For auld lang syne, my dear For auld lang syne We'll drink a cup of kindness yet For days of auld lang syne. Should auld acquaintance be forgot And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot And days of auld lang syne. For auld lang syne, my dear For auld lang syne We'll drink a cup of kindness yet For auld lang syne. Auld Lang Syne" Track Info.

Auld Lang Syne" translates literally to "Old Long Since" or more idiomatically, "Days Of Long Ag. This was sung over 150 years before Robert Burns came across it in the late 1780s. Burns transcribed it from "an old man singing," having been deeply moved by the words and in particular the line "should old acquaintances be forgot. He added at least two new verses to those which already existed and sent it to his friend James Johnson, the publisher of Scots Musical Museum, as an old Scottish song. On the last day of 1954, these broadcasts were televised for the first time, and Lombardo became the face of the holiday. In 1966, Lombardo shifted venue to the Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City, where he broadcast until death, always playing "Auld Lang Syne" as the calendar turned. The Royal Canadians did two more broadcasts sans Lombardo).
But what does Auld Lang Syne mean, and who came up with those oft forgotten lyrics? . As the ball drops from Times Square in New York City you will now doubt start out strong with ‘Should auld acquaintance be forgot’ and then just end up mumbling for the next solid minute. Here’s the thing, Auld Lang Syne, wasn’t really supposed to be associated with New Years.
