Eva's Polka

The song is called Eva's Polka, a Finnish song originally written in the 1930's. It gained fame and became well-known around the world (but not to me) during the spring of 2006 through the flash animation Loituma Girl. Lyrics are sung in savo, a Finnish dialect, and speak the story of a man who wants to dance polka with a girl, but is met by her mother's refusal.
