Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796)

We’re planning a wee celebration of Robert Burns’ birthday, but at the moment, it is so wee, it looks like the event will be cancelled. So, if you would like to make a reservation for this Friday night, please do so as soon as you can! I’ll comment tomorrow on whether we have enough people interested to go ahead. Ted is really looking forward to wearing his kilt… please don’t disappoint him!

UPDATE: This event has been cancelled due to a lack of interest: too few reservations.

Even if you aren’t a poetry buff, you know the work of Robert Burns- you sing one of his creations every December 31st as it turns into January 1st.


Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

and auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup!
and surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes,
and pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
sin’ auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
sin’ auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere!
and gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak’ a right gude-willie waught,
for auld lang syne.
