Subject: Lyr Req: Shenanigans

I'm in a band called 'Shenanigans', we play Irish and Welsh traditional music. Our fiddler recently bought a secondhand accordian, in the case there were a few sheets of music which had adverts on the back. One of these was for a song called 'Shenanigans' so of course I'd like to know more. The sheet music was published by Campbell,Connelly & Co Ltd of 11, Denmark St., London WC2 in 1938.
The song was in a 'British Lion-Republic Musical Picture Production "Outside Of Paradise"' by Peter Tinturin and Jack Lawrence. The first line was 'Take your partner in your arms, You kiss and then SHE'(presumably continuing NANIGANS on the next line)
Any ideas? I'm looking for the rest of the melody too. Any help would be appreciated. Richardf.

SHENANIGANS was recorded by Isham Jones and His Orchestra with vocalist Eddie Stone, in New York in 1937. The recording was released on the Vocalion label, #3911. This discographical information comes from www.redhotjazz.com, which has downloadable files of several other recordings by Isham Jones, but unfortunately not this one.

According to The Online 78rpm Discographical Project it was also recorded in that same year (1937) by Horace Heidt & His Brigadiers, and by Will Osborne & His Orchestra.

The National Museum of American History (part of The Smithsonian) has the sheet music in its Duke Ellington collection.

That's all I was able to find.

Here's a little more information—but I still can't find full lyrics or an online recording.

SHENANIGANS
by Peter Tinturin and Jack Lawrence.
New York : Santly Bros.,-Joy Inc., 1937.

"From the Republic Musical Picture Production "Outside of Paradise"--
First line verse: Oh, it started with the Flynns and the Flannigans.

Brigham Young University (Provo, Utah) also has the sheet music, and so does the British Library.

There are other, more recent songs with the same title.
