The last day of 2011 has finally arrived. Old people like me, call it “amateur night” and that’s the excuse we use for not going out. “It’s amateur night, I don’t want to be around all the drunks and young people who
can’t handle their alcohol.” When the truth really is that we can’t stay awake that long. In addition, that would be too many hours of drinking, and us old-timers don’t have the stamina to keep up. But most of us are too wise and proud to admit that. Take a look around the bar, or party, at 11:00 p.m., and see who is yawning. Odds are it will be an older person who is “posing” as an amateur. Don’t let the posers fool you! Also, do everyone a favor and don’t drink and drive.
Not many people remember the words to Old Lang Syne so I have written you a new song that you can sing tonight:
(New) Auld Lang Syne:
If all the lyrics you forget
Right after the first line
Don't worry 'cause you’re not alone
That's how you sing "Auld Lang Syne"!
The words are strange, I do believe
What the hell is Lang Syne?
Something about old friends
These are the lyrics forget me not
As we trash Auld Lang Syne
Have a couple shots and beer
Now plastered out of our minds!
It’s New Year’s Eve, so sing
But don’t get it wrong
Too much to drink, oh no
Can’t sing along
All the lyrics are forgot
Sing whatever comes to mind
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
Another Auld Lang Syne
The year 2011 has been phenomenal for me. I got a book deal and gained a bus load of the kindest, most wonderful people the world has to offer. I’m looking forward to driving into 2012 with all of you, I just know it will be an unforgettable ride.
