Length: approx. 3 ¾ mins. Sounds best if the bass is doubled.
is a splendid cakewalk published in what David A. Jasen called "that glorious year of the cakewalk". Its form is AABBACCBB with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude between the C and B strains. Each strain is a contagious whistling melody. An interesting touch is the use of heart-stopping stops at the end of each strain. It should also be noted that the composer writes that to be effective, it must not be played too fast. All-in-all a happy fun piece to warm the cockles of hearts young and old!
