  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Music Lyrics Explained Ten. We're

  • still continuing with some Christmas carols and this Christmas Carol that a

  • very famous one is called "Deck the Halls. " Okay. Let's start. Even

  • with the title 'deck' means to decorate something. So for Christmas you want to

  • put up a lot of decorations or someplace with a lot of parties that you're going to

  • have a party. So to deck something means to decorate it. Sometimes you might feel

  • like somebody's all decked out you know, when they're dressed up too. So we see deck

  • the halls. All right, and you know like usual we're

  • going to read the lyrics and I'm going to explain them as I go over it. So

  • here's how it starts. Deck the halls with boughs of holly.

  • All right. So that means decorate. Decorate the halls with boughs. These are tree

  • branches. You know, you often see that you know a lot of Christmas wreaths and

  • trees a lot of this stuff is used for Christmas decorations. So Holly , Holly a

  • bush or tree with dark green leaves. You know with sharp points and they might even

  • have some berries on them as well. All right. So deck the halls with boughs of

  • holly. And then now this is the chorus which really doesn't have much of a

  • meaning but it kind of goes nice in between each line. Which is just fa la,la

  • la, la, la, la, la , la.. You know, it sounds nice but it has no meaning. It's a lot of la, la.

  • Okay. Let's start again. Deck the halls with boughs of holly fa

  • la la la la la la. 'Tis the season to be jolly. All right.

  • 'T is is Old English. They actually spell it with an apostrophe T IS, but it means 'it

  • is' in Old English. So t'is the season the season, like the Christmas season. To be

  • jolly. Jolly of course you know friendly happy. We often use the word jolly we

  • often use the word jolly with Saint Nick, Santa Claus you know, jolly st. Nick or

  • jolly Santa Claus. He looks happy all the time. So we often use jolly with that

  • All right. So tis the season to be jolly. Fa la la la la la la la. Don we now

  • our gay apparel. all right This sounds a little weird. Well , don we still use don it's

  • a little formal today, but it usually means to wear something especially

  • clothing. It could be a hat . It could be accessories. Accessories so we don something. Don

  • we now. So now we are wearing. Don we now our gay apparel. Okay it sounds a little

  • strange. Anytime you read stories or books from like about a hundred years

  • ago or back further gay was very, very commonly used to simply mean happy or

  • excited. To be honest we don't hear this use very much anymore. Obviously because

  • you know gay is probably mostly used to mean homosexual. Today so you don't

  • really hear many people say I'm so gay today because it the , the people will not

  • think happy anymore. We don't use it for happy that much anymore. But this is, this

  • is actually an old Christmas Carol. This was originally written in the 16th

  • century it was a Welsh one and then I think there was a Scottish musician who

  • put the English lyrics to it in the in the 1700s. And then it was even kind

  • of redone for the one we had today the original one you have a lot of drinking

  • in it and this one doesn't have any drinking in it. So but anyway let me

  • continue, Don we now our gay apparel. Well apparel still means clothes. We

  • mostly use it in a business sense today. You know I'm buying like high-class

  • clothes or wholesaling them So that's what they say here. Don we now our gay

  • apparel falala lalala. Troll the ancient Yuletide Carol . All right. So there's a

  • little bit old use of troll. We have a lot of meanings for troll today. But this

  • one we don't hear as much. Toll here can means speak or recite quickly. So speak

  • the words. Say them quickly. So when they say troll the ancient, ancient you know

  • very old Yuletide. All right. Yuletide that meant the period from December 24th

  • to January 6th. So that was kind of like the Christmas season You know in former

  • times. So they used to refer to it as Yuletide. So troll the ancient Yuletide

  • Carol. And carol the same meaning today, like Christmas Carol. Christmas song and

  • then of course, it continues with fa la la la la la la la la.

  • See the blazing Yule before us. All right. So see the blazing, blazing means you know

  • very bright. Yule. Yule also is in reference you know like Yuletide. Before us.

  • In front of us. You know the the season. in the Christmas season. La la la la la

  • la la. Strike the harp and join the chorus. all right. Harp you know that the old

  • musical instrument that really big one with the wooden frame and it had a ... So a

  • musical instrument consisting of a row of strings with a big , you know, round of

  • wooden frames you've seen in the old times people played it with the strings

  • a really really large instrument. so they say strike. It means hit , you know. You

  • know. Just play it. Play, play the harp so strike the harp and join the

  • chorus. well join in singing, singing the chorus. The chorus here is fa la la la la

  • la la la. all right And then we continue. Follow me in merry measure.

  • All right. Well follow me, you know, follow my words

  • Merry, merry again means happy. Just like we still say. Merry Christmas, Happy or

  • lively Measure means a step or action that you take. We often use measures to

  • mean step or action. So follow me in merry measure. Fa la la la la la la la .

  • While I'll tell you of Yuletide treasure. So yeah. When I tell you of you know, the

  • season, the treasure about the season. Th nice things about this

  • Christmas season. falala lalala la la la. Fat away the old year passes. All right. So

  • the old year. The, the year before. Because it's the end of the year. S it does

  • seem like that as each year goes by, that the years seem to go quicker. So fast

  • away the old year passes. The year is passed, it's almost over.

  • Because it's always the end of the year when this song is being sung. Falala

  • lalala . Hail the New Year lads and lasses. All right. Hail means , you know to

  • praise or say publicly how good something is. Lads, yeah we still

  • sometimes hear I think the British use it more than Americans but we do hear it

  • to mean a young boy or young man. Yeah so hail the new year lads and lasses. Lasses was

  • the same way to mean a girl or a young woman a lass. Yeah you hear this in a lot

  • of the you know old old stories or Shakespeare stories something like that.

  • We still sometimes might hear it even in our modern English lad and lass.

  • Again, falala la la la . Okay. Sing we joyous all together.

  • All right . So we're all singing you know very happy joyous, causing happy feelings

  • We're all full of joy, very happy. Sing we joyous all together. All together in a

  • group. You know falala lalala lalala . Heedless of the wind and weather. All right. heedless

  • means well , we're well , normally we often tell you to heed advice or heed

  • warning. So maybe if the weather is bad you know people say, stay home. Don't go

  • out, but even though the weather might be bad at this time people still go

  • out. They want to party. They want to sing. so heedless of the the wind and weather.

  • Yeah basically, fa la la la la lalala. And that's how the song ends. and this is

  • another very common Christmas Carol we here. Every year repeated many many times

  • even a lot of native speakers might not know all the meanings of the words because

  • some of these, ome of the uses are a little bit old here.

  • But anyway it's still a fun Christmas song that you hear repeated a lot. Anyway

  • I hope you got it. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye
