And we’ll tak a right gude-willy waught,

I've always wondered what 'auld lang syne' means in a civilized language, Petty.  

And what's a 'gude-willy'? Sounds fun.  Smile 

Indeed, could you translate the whole thing from Scotshobbitish, please.  Very Happy

could you translate the whole thing from Scotshobbitish, please.- Orwell


What all of it?  Shocked (And that was the translation I put up!  Mad  )

Well you did say please and I am pleasantly  pickled, so Ill have a bloody go! (with drunken annotations)  drunken 

Ok- first there is no direct translation of the phrase 'auld lang syne' to english thats accurate as it depends on the context of use- but the closest accurate translation of the meaning would be something like- for old time sake, or for the sake of all the time thats passed since.

The first verse uses both meanings when it proposes two questions in the opening two lines -

Should we just forget about people we have known well in the past and not think about them?
And should we forget about old friends and the time thats passed since?

The chorus provides the answer-

Jo just means  'dear' so the first line could be rendered-

'for old times sake, my dear,'
and goes on to say that no, even after time has passed you should still think well of them.

The second verse is Burns, being a good Scot, just pointing out that whilst these sentiments are all very well well he hasnt gone mad and started proposing something crazy, like putting his hand in his sporran for a round.
So the second verse opens with him making this very clear to prevent expensive misunderstandings -

'surely you will buy your own pint cup!
and surely I'll buy mine!'

(ok it could also be taken as saying that if I am going to remember you with kindness, you should also remember me with kindness, for the sake of old times together)

Third verse is remembering things you did together-

braes are slopes on hillsides and gowans are daisies, so the first two lines are remembering running about the hills together among the daisies.
The last two lines of the verse point out that a lot of time has passed since those days-  'we've wandered many a weary foot'  has the same meaning as the modern phrase- 'a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then'.

The fourth verse is still in remembering mood, a  burn is a small stream, it then goes on to say that since then they have been separated by the broadness of the sea (referring to the Scottish diaspora after the Clearances that saw so many Scots end up in the US and Canada and Australia)

The final verse is about offering your hand to your old friend across the memory of time and distance, and taking their hand in return.

It ends with the idea that both will then have a right good drink in good will together (sorry Orwell buts that's what a 'right gude-willy waught' is- literally a 'right goodwill draught') for the sake of old times.


Hope that helps, or even makes sense!  drunken

What?! Are you implying being drunk doesn't improve someones chess game? Shocked   Evil or Very Mad 

(And if teenagers today spend new year getting drunk and then playing each other at chess, well things have changed since I was a drunk 19 year old thats for sure and not just the state of my liver!)

Well if you were doing shots then I hope it was at least strip chess and then I can have some belief restored in todays teenagers.  You'll be telling me next you spent the rest of the night working out maths problems  Mad 
What ever happened to irresponsible youth? I liked them, I used to be one.  Sad

Thanks for the translation, Petty.

And thanks for letting me know what teenagers are like nowadays, Norc... Though I thoroughly prefer the old ways ( cyclops )

First of all - happy new year to you all. I ended up playing a bush tucker trial game last night. For anyone that doesnt know what that is, it involves eating things you wouldnt normally eat. I was very close to throwing up on a few occasions!

Second of all, what the fuck is Riker wearing in this picture???
