Auld Lang Syne: Words to Songs You Used to Know
Auld Lang Syne is a timeless collection of lyrics for all to cherish. Our memories are bursting with half-remembered songs. They stick with us in a way that no other words do. Just the first few notes of a tune can bring a sports stadium full of people to their feet or kindle memories of starlit nights around a campfire, or a bedtime lullaby soothing us to sleep. But so often after those first few lines we're left humming until the chorus comes back in. With this book you need never miss a line again. Inside you'll find: * Beloved songs from across the English-speaking world, including tunes from Australia, America, Canada, Ireland as well as the UK * Lesser-known gems among the firm favourites * Short accompanying text explaining the origins and stories behind the lyrics celebrating the wonderful variety of songs, shanties, ballads, ditties and anthems that wind through our lives and bring us together.
