1. I live way out in Kansas where the prairie is so pretty
                                                                                        D  
I found myself  at Gaia which is down near Kansas City
            D7                                                         G
Some folks were singing round a fire, and man, it made me mad
             A7                                                                            D
‘Cause every time they sang a song, it sounded awful sad.
           D                                             A7
So I found this little problem in my personality.
                                                                              D
I lay too much emotion on what's mere modality.
 D7                                                        G
But, I've got a question.  Someone please explain to me -
 A7                                                                         D     A7
Why must pagan music always be in a minor key?  So I sing...


       D                                    A         A7                           D
Ch: Let's do the PAGAN POLKA, It's gonna win you over!
D7                                 G          A7                          D
Dance from dusk ‘til dawn Or ‘til the mead's all gone.

2. First you take your clothes off, get as naked as you dare.
Prance around the fire, throw your arms up in the air!
Do the PAGAN POLKA ‘til you see the rising sun.
Happy pagans-- "PAGAN POLKA" happy-- having fun!  (Ch)


                  G                           F
(bridge1) This crazy polka beat will give you happy feet
   G                                            A7
Dance ‘til the break of day - dance all your cares away!


3. Now, we do the PAGAN POLKA down upon the farm
The cows and chickens watch us as we dance and wave our arms.
The neighbors think we're crazy, and our children think they're right!
But we still do the PAGAN POLKA every single night!


                 G                            F
(bridge2)This crazy polka beat will give you happy feet
 G                                                A7
Dance ‘til the break of dawn - dance ‘til you can't go on!
                            

4. Now, we do the PAGAN POLKA down upon the farm.
The cows and chickens watch us as we dance an wave our arms.
The neighbors think we're crazy and, by george, they may be right,
But we still do the PAGAN POLKA every single night! (Ch)

                    A                A7         D G D
...And the mead's still going strong!        Whee !
