This tune is great fun in a ragtime set.

The tune is reported to come from a recording of a barrel organ and was introduced to the Ship session at Sidmouth in the 70s by Roger Edwards and Martin Ellison.
There are rumours of a third part. Does anyone know it?

It was featured by Flowers & Folics in the 70s and is of the same ilk as Woodland Revels, Bill Bailey, See Me Dance The Polka, Mickey Mouses Son And Daughter etc.
