New Old ...What?

This elf appears ready to spread a little more than holiday cheer.

In the song "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" the last lines are

Everyone's dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way

What is the "new old fashioned way" and why does that phrase grate on my soul to the point of not just ruining what is a pretty festive and enjoyable ditty but sours my outlook for hours?

Yeah, I always found that annoying. Also why in "the most wonderful time of the year," do they say "there'll be scary ghost stories?" That almost ruins that Xmas song for me.
