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?
