A Holly and Jolly Sing-Along

DECK THE HALLS
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.
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.

FROSTY THE SNOWMAN
Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the Snowman is a fairy tale they say.
He was made of snow but the children know
How he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic
In that old silk hat they found,
For when they placed it on his head,
He began to dance around.
Oh, Frosty the Snowman had to hurry
on his way,
But he waved good-bye saying
“Don’t you cry,
I’ll be back again some day.”
Thumpety thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpety thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

UP ON THE HOUSETOP
Up on the housetop reindeer pause,
Out jumps good old Santa Claus.
Down through the chimney with lots of toys,
All for little ones, Christmas joys!
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with old
Saint Nick.

JOY TO THE WORLD
Joy to the world! The Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room,
And heav’n and nature sing,
And heav’n and nature sing,
And heav’n, and heav’n, and nature sing,
Joy to the Earth! The Savior reigns;
Let all their songs employ.
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS
We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
And a happy New Year.
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a
happy New Year.
We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
And a happy New Year.
