Auld Land Syne of Bath, Maine

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne? And days of auld lang syne, my dear,
And days of auld lang syne.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne?

Old Paul Revere he made a bell
And it to Bath did come.
From Meeting House to City Hall
200 years has hung.
200 years has hung the bell
200 years has hung.
From Meeting House to City Hall
200 years has hung.

Join Main Street Bath and sing a song
This day to celebrate.
It’s 12 o’clock – 12 hours too soon
We did not want to wait.
1803 they hung the bell 
And every year it’s rung
From Meeting House to City Hall

and every years it’s rung.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne? And days of auld lang syne, my dear,
And days of auld lang syne.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne?
