This is a highlander song that is usually associated with the Polish dance known as the Trojak The lyrics describe a neighbor who has many daughters helping with sowing grain seed in his fields. One wonders why these women never married. Perhaps it is because they are quarrelsome and/or poor housekeepers.
Trojak ("threesome", "trio", in Polish) is a Silesian folk dance. It is a double partner dance and performed in groups of three: one male dancer and two female dancers. The music of the dance has two parts: a slow one in 3/4 metre and a fast one in 2/4 metre. These parts are repeated several times, one after another.

Ignoring the footwork, the figures may have the following arrangements:
  • All three move in sync from the same foot.
  • The boy dances with one girl, the second one dancing alone, then the boy switches the girl.
  • Girls are rolling on and then rolling off the arms.
  • The trio forms a circle
  • The boy and the girls separate and move in the opposite directions, then join again.

Here are some examples:
