Festen

A traditional Swedish polska/song, the name translates as ‘The Party’, or ‘The Festival’.

The original lyrics are:
Festen som vi väntar på har börjat, så var välkomna hit idag! (x2)
Unga, gamla, nu har vi alla samlat oss åt dansa och festa om. (x2)

Which translates as:
The party we’ve waited for has begun, so be welcome here today!
Young, old, we’ve all gathered to dance and party.

And it makes for a good session tune as well as a song!
