OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

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


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru and then with the sides
Make a right hand star, go full around now
Heads star left in the center, and stay in the star
Pick corner up and star promenade around
All back out, circle left and join in the fun
Swing the nearest girl and promenade her too
Everybody has a mania
To do the polka from Pennsylvania


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*They polka round the floor, the crowd begins to roar

*They kiss and then they start to kiss again


TAG

And do the polka from Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Polka  (1942)

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.
