"They Always Pick On Me"
The Library of Congress's National Jukebox Project has the original Ada Jones recording from 1911, which is most enjoyable as well. The other hits of Harry Von Tilzer , who wrote the music, included "A Bird in a Gilded Cage," "Cubanola Glide," "Wait 'Til The Sun Shines Nellie," "Old King Tut," "All Alone," "The Ragtime Goblin Man," "I Love My Wife, But Oh You Kid!," and "I Want A Girl Just Like The Girl Who Married Dear Old Dad."
I love to collect sheet music, pulp fiction paperbacks, LP album covers, and many other items for the graphics but long ago ran out of space to exhibit them. Maybe House Beautiful: Decorating with Your Favorite Objects will help. Do you have a similar collecting problem (or solution?)
