How grand to hear about this song. I performed it twice a day for two weeks each summer when I played with the Sadie Green Sales Ragtime Jug Band at the Knoebel's Park in Elysberg PA. I don't know where Tim and David learned this song. I found it was better to ask no questions. They sang slightly different lyrics but it was a real crowd pleaser. I have always associated it with those novelty tunes my father used to sing in the car. I remember "Lena is the Queena Palestina, Just Because She Plays the Concertina" and "Did You Ever Hear Pete Go Tweet Tweet Tweet on His Piccolo" Let's see you google those.
