Beer Barrel Polka

Well there’s a garden

And happy faces bloom there

There’s never any room there

for worry or gloom there

There’s music and dancing

And a lot of sweet romancing

When they play the polka

We all get in the swing

 

Every time we hear that humpapa

Everybody feels so tra-la-la

We want to throw our cares away

We all go ladi-jadi-jee

Then we hear a rumble on the floor

It’s the big surprise we’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

Sing boom tararrel

Ring out a song of good cheer

Now’s the time to roll the barrel

For the gangs all here

 

I found my sweet love there

Her lips are oh, so tender

I’m going to surrender

My heart and my soul there

We’re laughing and dancing

With a lot of sweet romancing

When we hear the polka

We both get in the swing

 

Every time we hear that humpapa

Everybody feels so tra-la-la

We want to throw our cares away

We all go ladi-jadi-jee

Then we hear a rumble on the floor

It’s the big surprise we’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

Sing boom tararrel

Ring out a song of good cheer

Now’s the time to roll the barrel

For the gangs all here

 

 

The goal of the MediLodge Whole Person Wellness Program is to recognize the unique individuality of everyone.  This approach to wellness is an active process in which everyone is encouraged to make choices towards personal growth in seven dimensions of wellness:  physical, social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, occupational/vocational and financial.  Most workplace wellness programs focus entirely on physical health.  With a whole person wellness approach, the physical needs will not be downplayed, but will be held in equal importance as the dimensions that involve mind and spirit.  In whole person wellness a high priority is placed on prevention, individual involvement and the responsibility we each have for achieving optimal wellness of body, mind and spirit.
