Length: approx. 3 ¾ mins. Sounds best if the 1st tenor and bass are doubled.
Perhaps because Kissing Bug was published by such a minor publishing house, it never received the same circulation and acclaim as Dill Pickles (1906) with which it may readily be compared. It is a lively piece with unforgettable melodies. The cover of the original sheet music depicts a charming and an eminently kissable "bug".
Kissing Bug was published by Keith Music Co., Louisville, Kentucky, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
