Beer Barrel Polka Rosamunde - Hvor er min kone

Melody - Melody - Melody - "Skoda Lasky" Jaromir Vejvoda, Wladimir A. Timm, Vasek Zeman, 1934

English Text: Lew Brown, 1939

There's a garden, what a garden,
Only happy faces bloom there
And there's never any room there
For a worry or a gloom there.
Oh! there's music and there's dancing
And a lot of sweet romancing
When they play a polka
They all get in the swing:
Ev'ry time they hear that oom-pa-pa
Ev'rybody feels so tra-la-la
They want to throw their cares away
They all go lah-de-ah-de-ay,
Then they hear a rumble on the floor
It's the big surprise they're waiting for
And all the couples form a ring
For miles around you'll hear them sing:
|: Roll out the barrel
   We'll have a barrel of fun
   Roll out the barrel
   We've got the blues on the run.
   Zing! Boom! Ta-ra-rel
   Ring out a song of good cheer!
   Now's the time to roll the barrel
   For the gang's all here. :|
