In fact, most people of any age will know something from this book, and those in the 40+ bracket will be amazed at how many familiar tunes they will find. The title tune was devoid of ragtime syncopations, but certainly one of the best known songs about the music. How many of you had parents or grandparents that bounced you on their knee to My Pony Boy? And how about the comedic Heaven Will Protect the Working Girl and and I Love My Wife but Oh You Kid (gasp!). Remember the lyrical Meet Me To-Night In Dreamland? How about Oh You Beautiful Doll? And with the original covers included, and the original verses as well, each song will have the meaning filled out by the entire lyric. Of the Dover series of ragtime era songs, this may be the best to start out with. Plus how much would it take to collect these on your own? I know, and don't ask. Many of these songs also appear on my site if you simply want to sing along to them.
