Note* - “This version of Ievan Polka, or Ievan Polkka, is in Japanese, by Hatsune Miku. Tokyo Polka is the name of the dance, not the music, and this line dance was premiered in Tokyo.” Richard Powers. The Savo Finnish tune Ievan Polkka , meaning Eva’s Polka, is also known as Loituma’s Polka and Leva’s Polka. Here is a wonderful comic video of Finnish lumberjacks playing the same melody and dancing to it.

Just for fun, here are the Lyrics to Ievan Polka.
