Random - Auld Lang Syne

I was thinking of ideas for my seasonal glass vase project, which got me to thinking about Burns Night, which led to Scottish Verses, which took me to Auld Lang Syne:

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought tae mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
for auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

Apologies, mini rant coming up:

I get steamed up every time I hear it mispronounced!! So I and the rest of Scotland would be much appreciated if you could note:

It is pronounced syne as in SIGN and NOT zyne. There is NO Z in Auld Lang Syne!!! Trust me, I'm Scottish!

OK rant over, I feel better for getting that out.
