Who Stole the Kishka?
|"Who Stole the Kishka?"|
Who Stole the Kishka?, originally spelled "Who Stole the Keeshka?" is a traditional polka tune, written by Walter Dana (music), and by Walter Solek (lyrics), and recorded and performed by various bands. One popular version was familiar to American radio audiences from a 1963 recording by Grammy award-winning polka artist Frankie Yankovic.
According to an obituary for Walt Solek who wrote and recorded the song, "Keeshka always gets the crowd going at a Polkaholics show as it has since it was recorded in the 1950s with English lyrics!"
The song ends with the pleading refrain "but please bring back my kishka".
