In 1962, "Ragtime Bob" Darch organized a momentous recording session that reuinited three giants of ragtime piano:  Eubie Blake, Charles L. Thompson, and Joe Jordan.  The session was broadcast on radio, and selections from it were issued on an LP titled "Golden Reunion in Ragtime".


These recordings have long been near-and-dear to me, and this number is a humourous piece of vaudeville by Joe Jordan.  I have loosely transcribed Joe's piano accompaniment, as well as the complete set of lyrics (and backup harmonies by Charlie and Eubie).


Here's the trio's original recording:
