Deck the halls (Angels sing)

Deck the halls (Angels sing)

Based on the traditional 'Deck the halls' but with added lyrics by Kim Wilde and Ricky Wilde, 'Deck the halls' is a song written in 2013. 

The song did not make the cut for Wilde Winter Songbook in 2013, as there were already twelve songs selected for the album. When the deluxe edition of the album was released in 2015, it was added as one of the bonus tracks. Kim performed the song live at Knebworth House on December 12 and 14, 2014 for the first time, with added vocals by the Knebworth Community Chorus.

The song uses only the first four lines of the old traditional '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

...and adds a new melody line and new lyrics after these four lines.
