Letkis

English translation

Letkis

Letkis is well-known here,
letkis we really can do here
Letkis by the Finns
has grown a massive trend
 
Letkis has spread all over the world,
letkis the dance of the young
And now the world will see,
how Finnish jenkka captivates
 
The one who couldn't stay at the line,
may've been taken by the Little Bad Wolf
You cannot be a tenderfoot
if you wanna come and dance in our line
 
Letkis the dance for the young,
letkis has spread all over the world
It is flying over the seas,
there letkis is the one that captivates
 
Every man, every man,
knows these steps I guess
Line of boys, line of girls,
has grown till a kilometer long
 
Jokinen, Mäkinen,
every other Nieminen
Virtanen, Lahtinen
and the constable Koivunen (1)
