"Deck the Halls" (original English title: "Deck the Hall") is a traditional Christmas and New Year's Carol. The "fa-la-la" refrains were probably originally played on the harp. The tune is Welsh dating back to the sixteenth century, and belongs to the winter carol "Nos Galan". In the eighteenth century, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart used its tune for a violin and piano duet. The repeated "fa-la-la" is from medieval ballads and used in Nos Galan. The remaining lyrics are American in origin dating from the nineteenth century.

This song is featured in various Disney music media, including Disney presents A Family Christmas.

Lyrics

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!
