<<Polka (literally meaning "Polish lady"): Polka dot is a pattern consisting of an array of filled circles. Early instances were generally equally sized and spaced relatively closely in relation to their diameters. Traditionally polka dots are used in the clothing of flamenco dancers and performers.

Polka dots became common on clothing in the late nineteenth century in the United Kingdom. There were many other "polka" items, some of which include "polka-hats" and "polka-jackets." Most disappeared with the fad of the actual polka dance. Only the polka dot fabric pattern remained popular, and the name has been left intact over the years.

Oxford English Dictionary: polka "On account of the popularity of the dance, polka was prefixed as a trade name to articles of all kinds (cf. quot. 1898 in 1).>>

I was looking for the Pivo Cerveny Polka; alas I couldn't find a good representation of it so I copied a picture! Red beer is what it is! Beer with tomato juice; try some it's good! :wink:

The actual title of the song is dance little bird
I'm having issues trying to embed the youtube video, maybe possibly you can find the time to do so sometime?
The title is chicken dance with Bob Kames
As one might imagine with having a last name that ends with ski i grew up listening to roll out the barrell
Good day

Edit / Chicken polka i now see that you stated,,,,, Hmmmm....My bad
I've come to the conclusion that when i said i wanted to be somebody when i grew up i probably should have been more specific
