  • I'm not sure which it is, but I know there's no comma- It just means sing the old Christmas songs. Hugs!

  • The lyrics to it.. I have no idea what it means...but I had to find out if it was "troll" or "toll"... it's "troll" lol

    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.

    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.

  • well according to mental floss "3. “Troll the ancient yuletide carol,” from “Deck the Halls.” In today’s lingo, this phrase gives us visions of mean people on the Internet, lurking on blogs getting ready to launch anonymous and ludicrous attacks on beloved Christmas songs. But in 1800s, the word was often meant with one of its now-little-known usages: to sing loudly and clearly."
