As mentioned above, Honey Bunch (1915) was published both as an instrumental and as a song, the lyrics being by Andrew B. Sterling. It is a lively fox trot in AABBCCBB form with a 4-bar introduction and two interludes of 5- and 8 bars between the BC and CB strains respectively. An all tenor/bass affair which the 1st tenor will especially enjoy having the melodies from start to finish. The cover of the original sheet music shows an elegant fox-trotting couple framed by bees and blooms. The backwards stepping beauty is presumably the original honey bunch that inspired this composition.
Honey Bunch was published by Harry von Tilzer Music Pub. Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
