Humorous folksong about a young girl sitting on an oven, sewing a satin dress. Along comes a young man and pulls the thread out of the dress. The girl cries out that he will pay for this!  Predictably, pretty soon the girl and boy are in love!

Sung by Ino Toper with the Jerzy Wozniak Instrumental Ensemble. Arranged by S. Senderej.

From Polska Nagrania Muza lp XL0163, Piesni Zydowskie, Warsaw, no date.

This recording was featured in the 1965 Czech  film "Shop on Main Street", starring Ida Kaminska.
