Letkis täällä tunnetaan, letkis meillä osataan Letkis suomalaisien on saanut aikaan villityksen hirmuisen Letkis maailmalla on, letkis tanssi nuorison Tietää mannermaa nyt saa, kuinka jenkka suomalainen valloittaa. Ken letkassa kestä ei, sen varmaan pikku-hukka vei Jenkkaamme letkaamaan ei heikkopäät saa tullakaan.
In Finnish Letkis is short for Letkajenkka, a diminutive or common name, formed by the beginning of the word and adding "is" in the end. Lehtinen's Letkis made the charts in many European countries, in Latin America, and even in Japan. There are numerous translations including Russian, Swedish, and Japanese. These were by Stig Rauno, Gudrun Jankis, a group called The Wild Ones and the Dutch Swing College Band. All four versions had the English title, Letkiss rather than the original Finnish title. Examples of non-Finnish letkis music include 'La Yenka' (performed by Johnny & Charley Kurt, 1965), Gainsbourg's Poupée de cire, poupée de son (performed at the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest by France Gall), Gemelle Kessler's Lasciati Baciare Col Letkis, "Leaf Fall" (Листопад) by David Tukhmanov and Ploem Ploem Jenka by nl:Pieter Goemans. In 1965, four instrumental versions of the tune reached number one in the Netherlands simultaneously. It remained the only Dutch number one to have originated from Finland until 2000, when Freestyler by the Bomfunk MC's reached number one.
The popular music genre and the ensuing dance craze were at their hottest during 1963–1965. Letkajenkka is based on the idea of performing Jenkka music using non-traditional instruments. Traditional instruments for playing the Jenkka, a Finnish traditional folk dance, are instruments such as the violin and accordion.

The Letkiss is a 1960s novelty dance based on the Bunny Hop from a decade earlier. In the early 1960s, Finnish musicians composed modern arrangements of folk music for the Jenkka, a Finnish schottische. But instead of dancing the schottische, people danced a modified Bunny Hop (beginning with the left foot instead of the right). This new genre of music was called letkajenkka ("line schottische") based on the song "Letkajenkka" by Erik Lindström (first recorded by The Adventurers). In late 1963, Rauno Lehtinen composed another letkajenkka called "Letkis.
