Subject: Off topic Song Request - 'King Tut...'
I'm sorry to place this off topic request here, but I don't know where else to ask.

I'm looking for a song from the 1920s (probably a jazz piece) called something like:

"King Tut, He ain't no regular guy"

The song/tune was mentioned in passing during a lecture on "Egyptonania" and its effects on furniture and decoration - I'm on a Restoration and Conservation course, so design history gets involved - so muggins here mentions "ephemera" and suddenly I'm asked to find if I can locate any details of the song (That'll teach me to keep my big mouth shut).

Does anyone out there in the Cafe have any ideas about this pease, please?

Regards

Walrus
