I have heard almost the same tune used by the Csango Hungarians of Moldavia for a dance called "Pingvin". (Form a conga line; everybody kick a few times each side, stick their arse out and move forwards in three bunnyhops; repeat indefinitely). Not very far from western Ruthenia, as Allan S guessed. The tune doesn't sound very Hungarian to me.
