Hi, Richie & Steve, and others.
I've been away from my PC for a week (bracing experience in itself, by the way).
Yes, Steve, I agree that the Henderson song has a vaudeville ring, including the tune. Perhaps it is no older than the 1930s. That might explain why it was apparently especially popular ca1940.
Thanks, Richie, for your heroic work on this song (and on others).
