St. Louis (KSDK) -- When the ball drops on New Year's Eve, there's a tune that a lot of people like to sing.

But, not everyone knows the Auld Lang Syne lyrics.  Just take a listen to the people NewsChannel 5's Kelly Jackson met Thursday and what they think the first line to the song is. Click on the video player to watch their performances.

Here is the English-translated version of the Auld Lang Syne lyrics:

Should old acquaintance be forgot,

and never brought to mind?

Should old acquaintance be forgot,

and old lang syne?

CHORUS:

For auld lang syne, my dear,

for auld lang syne,

we'll take a cup of kindness yet,

for auld lang syne.

And surely you'll buy your pint cup!

and surely I'll buy mine!

And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet,

for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have run about the slopes,

and picked the daisies fine;

But we've wandered many a weary foot,

since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have paddled in the stream,

from morning sun till dine;

But seas between us broad have roared

since auld lang syne.
