For me the words hold less sway than the New Year's theme of Guy Lombardo and the Royal Canadians.
Those strains are the true objective correlative for the occasion:
"Even after Lombardo's death, the band's New Year's specials continued for two more years on CBS. The Royal Canadians were noted for playing the traditional song Auld Lang Syne as part of the celebrations. Their recording of the song still plays as the first song of the new year in Times Square."
Sniff, sniff. Have a good one, y'all.
