"Deck the Hall"

           
    1. Deck the hall 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.
   
   
2.
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.
   
    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,
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.
