Deck the Halls

Although the background of this song has never been identified, most historians estimate that both the lyrics and melody originate from 16th-century Wales.


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

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

Fast away the old year passes,
Fa 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.
Heedless of the wind and weather.
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
