Length: approx. 3 mins. Sounds best if the 1st tenor and bass are doubled
is a fine spirited which fairly burbles along happily. Its form is AABBCCA with a 4-bar introduction. The A-strain has a whistling character a little reminiscent of an early Kerry Mills
piece. The 1st tenor has all the running allowing a display of solo ragtime virtuosity. Being an all tenor/bass affair the rhythm section should go easy on the "umpahs". The cover of the original sheet music depicts a full-faced portrait of a charmer adorned with a fantastic bonnet in a circular frame hung on a heavily grained hardwood panel stained dark brown. The significance of all this is lost in ragtime history but detracts nothing however from the enjoyment of this little gem.
