The Poetry Bus – The Bug Sings Auld Lang Syne. Sort of.

Jeanne Iris is driving the bus this week & gave us three prompts. I picked the "Write your own version of 'Auld Lang Syne.' Post it as a verse and sing/play it on your blog player" one.

Auld Lang Syne for You and Me
 
Should you and I review this year
And for the old days pine?
Should you and I regret these days
And auld lang syne? 

Oh I with you my sweetest dear
And you with me.
Yes I with you my only dear
And you with me!

Sure 'twas dark and sometimes light
And sometimes smelt of brine
But you were there & so was I
For auld lang syne. 

Oh I with you my sweetest dear
And you with me.
Yes I with you my only dear
And you with me!

Well close your eyes and sleep this night
We'll bide this darksome time
And by my side you'll wake the morn
With auld lang syne. 

Oh I with you my sweetest dear
And you with me.
Yes I with you my only dear
And you with me!


If you dare, listen to me sing it, here:





Happy New Year Everyone!
