Auld Lang Syne, 2020-Style

The day most of us have prayed for has finally arrived – December 31, 2020! The most unforgettable year on record will finally be over!

Now on New Year’s Eve, one long-running tradition is to sing the tune “Auld Lang Syne” as midnight hits. But given how 2020 has played out, perhaps the lyrics to this classic song should be altered somewhat. In this spirit, here is my own version of Auld Lang Syne, with lyrics to reflect some of the things that made 2020 so memorable.

 

Should 2020 be forgot

A year most unforeseen

Should 2020 be forgot

The year of COVID-19

 

For COVID-19, my dear

For old COVID-19

We’ll take a shot of vaccine yet

For old COVID-19

 

The year of social distancing

Most everything was closed

The raging mask/no mask debate

And threats from all opposed

 

For COVID-19, my dear

For old COVID-19

We’ll take a shot of vaccine yet

For old COVID-19

 

Dicamba, a ruling against

Product use was taken back

Re-registration did take place

But now, a new attack

 

For COVID-19, my dear

For old COVID-19

We’ll take a shot of vaccine yet

For old COVID-19

 

New hope does dawn, at least at first

A better year with sun

2021 could finally see

All freed to have some fun

 

For COVID-19, my dear

For old COVID-19

We’ll take a shot of vaccine yet

For old COVID-19

 

Happy New Year, everyone!
