What NUMBER GRADE (not letter!) do you believe you currently have in this class?

Why do you think that this is your grade?
This is the most popular New Year's Eve song in history.
The song you are about to hear is titled:
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
And days of old long past.

For old long past.
For old long past.
Should old acquaintance be forgot
And days of old long past

We two have run about the hills
And pulled the flowers fine;
We've wandered many a weary foot
Since old long past.

We two have paddled in the brook,
From morning sun till dinner,
But seas between have roared and swelled
Since old long past.

For old long past.
For old long past.
The seas between have roared and swelled
Since old long past.

And there is a hand, my trusty friend!
And give me a hand of yours!
And we will take a right good-will drink,
For old long past.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne,
For auld lang syne,
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes
And pu'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd mony a weary foot
Sin auld lang syne.

We twa hae sport'd i' the burn,
Frae mornin' sun till dine;
But seas between us hae roar'd an sw'lld
Sin auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne
For auld lang syne
The seas between us hae roar'd and sw'lld
Sin auld lang syne.

And there's a hand, my trusty fiere!
And gie's a hand o' thine!
And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
