Year: 1934

In London theatre show Hi Diddle Diddle. Vocal: Nat Gonella. In fact much older than that. One of many party songs Cole Porter wrote in the 1920s, this one for his friend Monty Woolley while impersonating a butler. That same Woolley sang it in the biographical film Night And Day in '46. Can also be seen as a lyrical precedent to Tout va très bien Mme la Marquise.
