All about "Auld Lang Syne"

How many times have you wondered about the origin of the song "Auld Lang Syne?" Just in time for New Year's Day, Dover Publications offers a brief history, and the words to all five verses.

Dover's web site offers a book called The American Song Treasury: 100 Favorites, and it just happens that the online sample section from the book is all about the perennial New Year's Day favorite. According to Dover, it originated in the 1600s but didn't come into its present-day form until the late 1700s.

Thanks to Jeanne from Atenveldt for posting the link on that kingdom's e-list.
