From Saint Louis Tickle, introduced at the World's Fair in Saint Louis, but really derived from Buddy Bolden's blues - the famous trumpeter's theme song. A different version is on the CD '12String' available at http://cdbaby.com/group/asulger
Written by "Barney and Seymore", actually Pierce City, Mo. ragtimer Theron C. Bennett, 1904.
I heard Dave Van Ronk do this in the Village many years ago, and wore out my friend Kevin's precious Van Ronk album listening to it. This is what I remember about it from the 60's
if you remember the 60's, you weren't really there
Wish I could shimmy like my sister Kate,
She knows how to shimmy and
She knows how to shake
She knows how to shimmy,
she's got what it takes,
Wish I could shimmy like my sister Kate.
Wish I could mmmm, like nnaa,daya-da
