Does anyone have access to KENNETH J. OBEREMBT SHEET MUSIC COLLECTION? It's at the University of Iowa Library.

I'd like to see (or get lyrics to) the song: Quit dat ticklin' me: a black face novelty for two girls. H. Carlton. Cora Page.
Franklin, Ohio : Eldridge Entertainment House, Inc., 1912.
MsC 801
Collection Dates: 1899-1927
0.5 linear ft.

Collection Guide
This document describes a Manuscript Collection or University Archives Collection held by the Special Collections Department
University of Iowa Librariese-mail: lib-spec@uiowa.edu

This song has been done by the Blue Sky Boys, Volo Bogtrotters and others. There are also floating lyrics that appear in other songs.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Richie

My first thought was "Cunnla". The "tickling" line seems to be a floater.

"Bile them cabbage down" contains a chorus with that line in it.

If you search YouTube by that title you'll find a Stringbean/Grandpa Jones/Ronni Stoneman et al. group performance of it. However, the lyrics don't match the original, having been adapted over the years. There are two revival band performances as well, one under this title and one with the title spelled "Tickling."

But you can find a recording of the original by its composer!! Read on.

The song was written by Silas Leachman (1859-1936), a Chicago politician(1) and vaudeville performer responsible for creating or adapting some early classics, including "Whoa Dar Mule" (1901), "Good Morning Carrie" (1902), "Mr. Johnson Don't Get Gay," and "Sit Down."

Several sites offer downloads of Leachman singing "Quit That Ticklin' Me" — The best possibility is probably Internet Archive at:

Happy listening. Bob
