According to the front cover of the original sheet music The Squee-Gee was "done" by Williams and Walker, the then famous Vaudeville duo. It is a bright and breezy two step and its form is AABBACCDCDC with a 4-bar introduction whereby the AB- and CD-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively. The editor having been once a very young naval rating is touched that this humble, but extremely effective cleaning apparatus that no naval latrine could/can do without, has been celebrated in this manner. It is a worthy companion to the better known Mop Rag (1909) by Helen S. Eaton. Oh, and by the way, it is a pretty good piece of music too!
The Squee-Gee was published by The Attucks Music Pub. Co., New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
