My memory is that sometime in the girl-group era sixties, this goofy polka by Frankie Yankovic was a huge hit on Cleveland (where else?) radio. Does anyone know the history or derivation of this song?

No, non, nein! Earl and Mooch stole the kishka (See Mutts comic strip). I believe that Lou Gottlieb, in his introduction to "Romania, Romania", pithily describes kishka as "Derma"; that's stuffed intestine to the rest of us. Mmmmm, good.

Jasha stole the kasha...and good riddance I say.

There are a number of versions of 'who stole the kishka' which can easily be found on YouTube. But this one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzGsos7OmQw&feature=related

shows that despite the silly words, it's a delightful mitteleuropaisch tune.

I got to wasting time listening to different songs, of course. I hadn't realized that the only part of Frankie's 'Blue Skirt Waltz' I knew was the chorus. (That song won a gold record. Something else I hadn't known.)

according to mp3lyrics.org, as recorded by Brave Combo, the title is same as this thread and the lyrics are:

Someone stole the kishka
Someone stole the kishka
Who stole the kishka,
from the butcher's shop?
Who stole the kishka?
Who stole the kishka?
Who stole the kishka?
Someone call the cops!

Fat and round and firmly packed
It was hanging on the rack
Someone stole the kishka
When I turned my back
Who stole the kishka?
Who stole the kishka?
Who stole the kishka?
Someone bring it back!

Someone stole the kishka
Someone stole the kishka
Who stole the kishka,
from the butcher shop?
Who stole the kishka?
Who stole the kishka?
Who stole the kishka?
Someone call the cops!

Yusef found the kishka
Yusef found the kishka
Yusef found the kishka
And he hung it on the rack.
He found the kishka
He found the kishka
He found the kishka
Yusef brought it back
Heeeeeyyyyyyyy
Hey!
huh-huh-huh-huh

There are plenty of recordings on youtube, though I didn't immediately see this one; search on 'keeshka' as well as 'kishka'
