I was whistling the Pennsylvania Polka yesterday when my Dad said,"you know the Pennsylvania Polka?"
In my ignorance I had assumed that the song was composed specifically for the football team....wrong!! :dang:
It was written in 1942 by Zeke Manners and Lester Lee and has been recorded by, amongst others,The Andrews Sisters.
Yeah,Iknow the above is probably a word to the wise but anyway here`s the original lyrics...

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.

"Everybody has a mania to do the polka from Pennsylvania"......classic! :cheers:
