Buried among the ads printed in the 1911 book Little Tich is one for Francis & Day's 30th Annual, a collection of 24 of "the latest  successful songs & ballads" ("Words and Music with Pianoforte Accompaniments complete").  Among the songs listed (for obsolescence, it turns out) are such gems as "Put on Your Tat-Ta, Little Girlie," 'Down in the Jungle," "There's a Little Black Cupid in the Moon," "I'm Setting the Village on Fire"...and this one.

Let's go back to 1910 and listen to Harry Champion sing this toe-tapper.
