X:1 T:St Louis Tickle N:From the playing of the Humphries Brothers (Texas) C:Theron C. Bennett (1904), written under the pseudonym C:Barney & Seymour. N:The tune celebrated the St. Louis Exposition. "Immensely popular with N:contemporary pianists St. Louis Tickle has become an evergreen standard N:recorded right up to the present day. Its popularity rests not only its bright N:infectious strains but perhaps also on the notoriety of the B-strain said to N:have been derived from Funky Butt, whose vulgar lyrics delighted street N:urchins and young men about town alike."
