Getting Married in the Czech Republic? Spin Around, Spin Around

“Tancuj Tancuj” is popular Czech/Slovakian polka that you’ll certainly hear if you’re lucky enough to go to a Czech or Slovak wedding. This lively polka implores dancers to dance and spin with abandon — “Tancuj tancuj” means “dance, dance” and the next words of the original, “vykrúcaj vykrúcaj,” mean “spin around, spin around” — but, as this translation provided by Mama Lisa’s World tells us, one must be careful! “Just don’t make my stove fall down, fall down…A stove is good in the winter, winter…not everyone has a down comforter, comforter.”
