Do any of you actually sing this song on New Year's Eve? And who really knows what it means? I did a quick search online and found out a lot about this traditional New Year's Eve song, but I want to see what you know!

I sing it every year! I know that the entire song is basically about fondly remembering the year past. I think it originates from Scotland. I remember one of my High School teachers telling us about the history of this song a lonnnnnnnnngggggg time ago. Yes...I'm old.
Me, my friends and my family sing it every year, im not too sure what it means though. We also sung it whilst I was on the World Scout Jamboree this year. Its certainly different with 40,000 people from every country in the world singing it.
I can never remember them when it counts
