Here's a funny American song from the 1920's, music and lyrics by Con Conrad and J. Russell Robinson:


'They say Leena is the queen of Palesteena,

Just because she plays the the concertina'

Here's a version from The Singapore Slingers


They suggest that there are possible certain health benefits from concertina playing:


"She was fat but she got leaner pushing on her concertina"
