GUEST,Barbara Lyr Req: Stodola Pumpa (trad. Czech) (53* d) RE: Lyr Req: Stodola Pumpa (trad. Czech) 30 Oct 10

The number of different English lyrics to "Stodola Pumpa" seems to bear our the claim that the original version was too earthy for general consumption. Perhaps the intended joke lies in the abrupt, unexpected switch from the romantic/lyrical ballad style of the verses (whatever their words may have been)to the rowdy chorus, which does sound pretty imitative of "pumping" in the barn.
