Deck the Halls

Song Video

Lyrics

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.
Tis the season to by jolly,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Don we now our gay apparel,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

See the blazing Yule before us,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.
Strike the harp and join the chorus.
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Follow me in merry measure,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
While I tell of Yuletide treasure,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Fast away the old year passes,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.

Sing we joyous, all together,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.
Heedless of the wind and weather,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Information About Deck the Halls

"Deck the Halls" (originally "Deck the Hall") is a popular traditional Christmas and New Year carol. The melody is from a Welsh song dating back to the 16th century.

In the eighteenth century the tune spread widely, with Mozart using it in a piano and violin concerto and, later, Haydn in the song "New Year's Night". The first published lyrics were written in Welsh by Welsh Poet John Ceiriog Hughes during the 19thcentury. At this time the carol was known as "Nos Galen".

The English words generally sung today are American in origin and date from the 19th century, but are not a translation from the original Welsh.

This is a mean version of the song

Deck the halls with poison ivy,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.
Tis' the season to be naughty.
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.

Break a window,
Pop a tire,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la!

Set your teacher's pants on fire. .
Fa la la la la. .la la la LA!
