Definitely one of their best songs, but I don't really call a static picture of an album cover a "cool video". :)

I think "Sister Golden Hair" is my favourite.

Serious misnomer, eh?

 

My actual fav America song is this one...

Ok here is a tune for URMAS. Well five tunes. Well five tunes but the same. Well five tunes with the same music and words but different.

The sound of a polka drifted from my neighbor's

and set my feet a-tapping oh!

Ieva's mother had her eye on her daughter but

Ieva she managed to fool her, you know.

'Cause who's going to listen to mother saying no

when we're all busy dancing to and fro!

 

Ieva was smiling, the fiddle it was wailing

as people crowded round to wish her luck.

Everyone was hot but it didn't seem to bother

the handsome young man, the dashing buck.

'Cause who's going to mind a drop of sweat

when he's all busy dancing to and fro!

 

Ieva's mother she shut herself away

in her own quiet room to hum a hymn.

Leaving our hero to have a spot of fun

in a neighbor's house when the lights are dim.

'Cause what does it matter what the old folks say

when you're all busy dancing to and fro!

 

When the music stopped then the real fun began

and that's when the laddie fooled around.

When he took her home, when the dancing was over

her mother angrily waiting they found.

But I said to her, Ieva, now don't you weep

and we'll soon be dancing to and fro!

 

I said to her mother now stop that noise

or I won't be responsible for what I do.

If you go quietly and stay in your room

you won't get hurt while your daughter I woo.

'Cause this fine laddie is a wild sort of guy

when he's all busy dancing to and fro!

 

One thing I tell you is you won't trap me,

no, you won't find me an easy catch.

Travel to the east and travel to the west but

Ieva and I are going to make a match.

'Cause this fine laddie ain't the bashful sort

when he's all busy dancing to and fro.

Darn super show girls :clap:

 

Not that I am biased being half Latvian. :breakfast:

 

I find it pretty cool that I like all five different versions, an I found a few more that I liked aswell at YT. A classic is a classic no matter how old it is. :Laie_95:

Too much work that.

 

I'll just keep doing what I've been doing; as an Admin, I can just "Edit" the posters post to see the raw URL, then C & P to my browser address bar.
