Harry: What does this song mean? My whole life, I don’t know what this song means. It says ‘Should old acquaintance be forgot.’ Does that mean we that should forget old acquaintances or does it mean that if we should happen to forget them, we should remember them which is not possible because we already forgot?Sally: Well maybe it just means that maybe we should remember that we forgot them or something. Anyway, it’s about old friends~ When Harry Met Sally ~
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.
...Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.
