25 Songs: Lil’ Wally

Ho-ho-ho! It’s the last day of our accordion advent calendar and we’ve had a blast sharing music from some of our favorite accordion-toting artists. We’ll wrap up with a tune from polka legend Lil’ Wally Jagiello — composer, arranger, drummer, singer, self-taught concertina player, relentless promoter, and the undisputed king of Chicago polka. From everyone here at Let’s Polka (myself, Anna, and Sarah), we wish you a merry and musical Christmas!


  1. When I was a little boy, my mom liked to listen to Lil’ Wally. She had two or three of his records. One of them was a recording of racy Polka material sung in Polish. Mom would never translate for us (none of us kids nor my dad spoke Polish), but when she listened, her face would turn beet red and she would double over with laughter.

    Merry Christmas from Toronto.

  2. I am looking for a copy of a polka with the words sung…She don’t want no eggroll she wants kielbassi.

    Thank you.
