Karen wrote asking for help with a Polish song from her childhood. Here’s her email:
I am Polish but never learned the language although it was used all around me growing up.
My grandfather used to bounce me on his knee and sing a song. He passed in the 70’s. I remember the tune but the words are beyond me… If I give them to you phonetically, perhaps you would recognize them? I have no more Polish speaking family. Any help would be appreciated. The song keeps going around in my head. (It could well be just a piece of Nonsense!)
Vee gee mama
Vee gee mama
Yak tosh leh
Shish ke pano
Ah nya nye
I know it looks odd but that’s what is going around in my head… and it’s OK to laugh!
If anyone can help with this rhyme, please comment below. Thanks! -Mama Lisa

I believe I can decipher some words, it could go like this:
jak to źle
A ja nie
Unfortunately nothing remotely similar comes to my mind nor could I find anything on the internet. Maybe if you sent me a recording with the melody I could find something, as I have more of an ear for songs than a memory for words. You can find me on discord – nick is my name above and the number 4979
Anyways, Merry Christmas – Wesołych Świat!
