"DECK THE HALLS"

Intro
Deck the halls, deck the halls.

Verse 1
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 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.

Verse 2
Oh, 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 la.
Follow me in merry measure,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la,
While I tell of Yuletide treasures.
Fa la la la, la la la la la.

Break 2
Deck the halls with boughs of holly.
Deck the halls with holly holly.

Verse 3
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 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.

Verse 4
Deck the halls with boughs of holly.
’Tis the season to be jolly.
Follow me in merry measure
While I tell of Yuletide treasures.
Fa la la la, la la la la la.

Verse 5
Fast away the old year passes,
[Oooh, it passes.]
So hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
[Ye lads and lasses.]
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.

Break 4
Deck the halls with boughs of holly.
Deck the halls with holly, holly.
