Fight for the Right to Paaaaaarty

Polka party, that is. We need some party music, people! Let's play some music we can dance to, for crying out loud!

Oh. My. Gosh. Men in too short shorts and no shirts doing the polka? Thanks Helen. Now I'm going to have nightmares.

The polka looks different when done in swimsuits...I don't know. I THOUGHT I could polka, but these folks have added a few moves I'm not familiar with.

My Daddio can play a mean polka on his accordian. We have a blast...fully clothed.

Thank you Helen, for both a polka swimsuit competition AND a chance to relive my senior year in high school - mullets, short-shorts and all.

Seriously, I don't think I've ever seen a polka before this. The closest I came was an Oktoberfest celebration. But then everybody was in costumes... This was like reality-show polka.

My life is now complete.

katdish said...

Yeah....

Shorty shorts, Flash Dance t-shirts, striped tube socks, mullets. It's all coming back like a bad Long Island Ice Tea hangover. Never was much of a polka dancer though.

Would somebody please find another counter for the sidebar? I don't feel like it.

Well there goes my plans for the evening! No way I can shake that image before...well...you know...the wife...me...candles...Celine Dion.

No, now I'll have half naked men dancing to polka music rattling around.

Thanks!

Nice. They forgot to invite Magnum P.I.

I like how all of you ladies focused on the guys. I just want to say that there is a point in a young girl's life when she should consider support especially when jumping around. Some of those ladies looked like they might put an eye out.

Silly me. It helps to have the words to the song to get into the music better!


Hey Cavalier Polka

Hej, hej, kawalerowie
Nie zawracaycie
Dziewczynie glowe
Hej, hej, kawalerowie
Nie zawracajcie
Dziewczynie glowe

Kolo mego miasteczka
Stalamloda dziewczyna
Ej piekna byla
Piekna jak laleczka
Ale byla za mloda
Ej piekna byla
piekna jak laleczka
Ale byla za mloda

Hej, hej, kawalerowie
Nie zawracaycie
Dziewczynie glowe
Hej, hej, kawalerowie
Nie zawracajcie
Dziewczynie glowe

A ta mloda dziewczyna
Taka wymalowana
Ej ciemne oczka
Piekne ciemne oczka
Mloda dziewczyna miala
Ej ciemne oczka
Piekne ciemne oczka
Mloda dziewczyna miala

Helen - um...wow.

Tony C - to get you back in the mood, read this post: Who knew Celine Dion liked hot dogs so much?

sherri said...

Helen- The words look like a bunch of my typos again.

How do we know these are the REAL words? ANd not just a bunch of typos?

Is there anyone with the gift of interpretation on this blog?

Have you ever visited the Polka Hall of Fame up there in Chicago?

I can just see you dancing down the aisles there. Fully clothed, of course. We don't want you putting someone's eye out with one sharp turn!

Katdish, Sherri told me to come over here and force you to watch this video or you were in biiiiiiiig trouble!!! Ok, I'm just kidding. She said you'd enjoy it LOL

So I read all these comments BEFORE I get a chance to see the video and whoa. Yeah, get my honey some tube sox and and accordion. I'm just glad for the lyrics (thanks, Helen)- I've always been known to mangle songs ala Celine Dion. I really like to know what I'm dancing to.
