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 Yule tide 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 Yule tide treasure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

"Deck the Halls" (original English title: "Deck the Hall") is a traditional Yuletide and New Years' carol.
The "fa-la-la" refrains were probably originally played on the harp.
The melody is Welsh and belongs to a winter carol, Nos Galan.
In the eighteenth century Mozart used the tune to "Deck the Halls" for a violin and piano duet.
But the lyrics we sing now are American in origin and are from 1903.
