  • There's a garden, what a garden
    Only happy faces bloom there
    And there's never any room there
    For a worry or a gloom there

    Oh there's music and there's dancing
    And a lot of sweet romancing
    When they play the polka
    They all get in the swing

    Every time they hear that oom-pa-pa
    Everybody feels so tra-la-la
    They want to throw their cares away
    They all go lah-de-ah-de-ay

    Then they hear a rumble on the floor, the floor
    It's the big surprise they're waiting for
    And all the couples form a ring
    For miles around you'll hear them sing

    Roll out the barrel, we'll have a barrel of fun
    Roll out the barrel, we've got the blues on the run
    Zing boom tararrel, sing out a song of good cheer
    Now's the time to roll the barrel, for the gang's all here

    Then they hear a rumble on the floor, the floor
    It's a big surprise they're waiting for
    And all the couples form a ring
    For miles around you'll hear them sing

    Roll it out, roll it out, roll out the barrel
    Dump-dump-da da-da da-dat en da-da-da-da-da
    Sing a song of good cheer
    'Cause the whole gang is here
    Roll it out, roll it out
    Let's do the beer barrel polka Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
