OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Strike up the music, the band has begun
The Pennsylvania Polka
Dance to the music, and join in the fun
The Pennsylvania Polka,
circle left
It started in Scranton, it's now number one
Left allemande, promenade now
Everybody has the mania
To do the polka from Pennsylvania


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Head couples promenade, go halfway around
Down the middle, pass the ocean, extend
Swing thru go down the line, girls you fold
Peel the top, go right & left thru
Square thru and go 3 hands around
Swing the girl, promenade now
Everybody has the mania
To do the polka from Pennsylvania


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four ladies promenade, go one time around
get home swing that man round and round
Join hands, circle to the left go movin' round
Left allemande, weave around that ring
In and out around, when you meet again
Dosado, promenade that ring
Promenade that ring, take that lady home I sing
You're dancing to the Pennsylvania Polka

Pennsylvania Polka
 
 

Strike up the music the band has begun
The Pennsylvania Polka
Pick out your partner and join in the fun
The Pennsylvania Polka
It started in Scranton. It's now number one
It's bound to entertain ya
Everybody has a mania to do the polka from Pennsylvania

While they're dancing
Everybody's cares are quickly gone
Sweet romancing
This goes on and on until the dawn.
They're so carefree
Gay with laughter, happy as can be
They stop to have a beer
Then the crowd begins to cheer
They kiss and then they start to dance again.

Strike up the music the band has begun
The Pennsylvania Polka
Pick out your partner and join in the fun
The Pennsylvania Polka
It started in Scranton. It's now number one
It's bound to entertain ya
Everybody has a mania to do the polka from Pennsylvania.

Lyrics by Lester Lee and Zeke Manners.
Recorded by Frankie Yankovic and His Yanks.
