      Children have performed a 'handkerchief' dance, in Texas,  to this song since the 1960's. I believe that I have some dance instructions - will look up.

      Originally, at least in the Dallas Czech Children's groups, the costumes for the children were made from 'red' handkerchiefs.

      Here is a picture of my scan.  My OCR doesn't like diacriticals!

      They are two totally different songs. Cerveny satecek is Red Handkerchief, and it is a folk song. Red skirt Waltz is a waltz and this is not a waltz.
      Translation:
      Red Handkerchief
      Turn round
      Turn round
      My love is upset
      and I do not know why.

      If I can find my songbook from the Czech Republic, I can scan a copy for you with lyrics. I think there is another verse which tells how she let go of her red handkerchief in the stream and it floated away.
