Säkkijärven Polkka is a traditional Finnish folk song from the Karelian region of Finland (formerly part of Russia).

Famously it was used by the Finnish to safely detonate Russian landmines which were triggered by a unique combination of three note frequencies. So Säkkijärven Polkka was played on repeat during the Continuation War! Säkkijärven Polkka is a very popular tune for accordion players.

Our Sheet Music Boss audience was keen to hear Säkkijärven Polkka so we hope you enjoy this arrangement!

Säkkijärven Polkka Lyrics:

The Säkkijärvi Polka
The land of Karelia is only a beautiful memory,
but music still sounds from the heart,
when the musician’s fingers let you hear,
the Säkkijärvi Polka!

That polka brings past times to mind
and creates a strange longing in the chest.
Hey, musician, let the accordion play
the Säkkijärvi Polka!

It takes the young and the old to dancing,
nothing compares to that polka!
With it even living without a roof is
Säkkijärvi Polka!

It has the rippling of the waves,
it has the waver of the pine trees.
Karelia sounds – everybody knows it –
the Säkkijärvi Polka!

Come, come girl, dance with me now,
when the polka jingles so delicately.
Hoi! Let the horse lament and clench its teeth,
when it has a larger head!

Come, come, girl, dance with me now
when we have joy and a summerly weather!
We have lost Säkkijärvi,
but we still have the polka left!

When the dearest strands have been left behind,
a wanderer in foreign places finds solace,
when listening to the wistful music:
the Säkkijärvi Polka!

It is only polka, but the kind,
that leads to the path of memories.
The sound of the beautiful Karelia is:
the Säkkijärvi Polka!

It takes the young and the old to dancing,
nothing compares to that polka!
With it even living without a roof is
Säkkijärvi Polka!

It has the rippling of the waves,
it has the waver of the pine trees.
Karelia sounds – everybody knows it –
the Säkkijärvi Polka!

Come, come girl, dance with me now,
when the polka jingles so delicately.
Hoi! Let the horse lament and clench its teeth,
when it has a larger head!

Come, come, girl, dance with me now
when we have joy and a summerly weather!
We have lost Säkkijärvi,
but we still have the polka left!

When the dearest strands have been left behind,
a wanderer in foreign places finds solace,
when listening to the wistful music:
the Säkkijärvi Polka!

It is only polka, but the kind,
that leads to the path of memories.
The sound of the beautiful Karelia is:
the Säkkijärvi Polka!
