Only six per cent of people can sing the whole of Auld Lang Syne, sample verse: "And surely you'll be your pint stowp, And surely I'll be mine, And we'll drink a richt guid willy waught, For auld lang syne.
And if you're still struggling here are a few useful translations: auld lang syne means old long ago, be your pint stowp (buy your pint tankard), braes (hills), pou'd (pulled), gowans (daisies), monie (many), fit (foot), twa (two), paidl'd (paddled), burn (stream), morning sun (noon), dine (dinnertime), braid (broad), fiere (friend) and, finally, guid-willie waught (goodwill drink).
