Class: Original Piano solo.

Published: 1927.

Comment: This, as you might expect, is based on the old piano vamp. It opens with whole-tone harmonies which lead into a version of the title tune followed by two short interludes more in Billy's novelty style. The 'Chopsticks' theme returns, to die away at the bottom of the keyboard.
