Let byganes be byganes,
Wha's huffed at anither
Dinna cloot the auld days
And the new anes thegither ;
Wi' the fauts and the failing
0' past years be dune,
Wi' a grip o' fresh freen'ship
A New Year begin.
So sang a Scot. Beneath the burr of his High
land tongue the meaning of some of the words
may be obscured, but the meaning of the verse
as a whole is plain enough.
Let bygones be bygones. The year of 1926
goes to join in history the years that have gone
before. Throw away the hatchet along with
the 1926 calendar.
With the faults and the failings of past years
be done. This is another year.
Begin it with a grip of fresh friendship.
