NEW!! English (and Spanish) Language Lyrics
IN the history of the polka genre in America, there were indeed some songs that had English language lyrics. Some of them are beautiful, but there have been very few to pick from.
Good news! We have developed original English language (and one Spanish language) lyrics to some of those beautiful original Vitak-Elsnic polkas and waltzes. Some are legacy, but most are new. And the themes include more than dancing, being in love or drinking beer. Some of these lyrics have Christian themes. Others include a tribute to a wounded warrior returning home, the story of a four-year old little boy, and the observations of a dancing blackbird.
The chart below indicates whether they lyrics have been written for male, female or duet vocalists, as well as what musical arrangements – which we carry – that they can be used with.
And more good news – the lyrics are only $5.00 each and can be instantly downloaded and printed out. To go to the complete list of lyrics click here.

Our best selling folios may be purchased through instant download. Unlike the individual charts, folio parts may be ordered separately.

Accordion Folios | Accordion Polkas | Accordion Waltzes | Accordion Schottisches | Accordion Other – We have a wide selection of music – including folios and individual items of sheet music – for the solo accordionist. These selections also come with chords, providing versatility for the instrumentalist seeking to develop his or her own style of play. Much of the accordion solo sheet music and several charts are supplements to individual charts and folios for small band or orchestra.
Piano (Keyboard) Folios | Piano (Keyboard) Polkas | Piano (Keyboard) Waltzes | Piano (Keyboard) Schottisches | Piano (Keyboard) Other – Much of the music that we sell for small bands and accordion is also available for piano solo. Our online selection is dwarfed by the amount of music we have in archives. Many of our individual piano solos in archives also have Czech or English-language vocals.
