Music Roll of "Baby Bumble Bee" Song
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  Stay in this business long enough and someone might ask
_you_ to find a music roll titled "Baby Bumblebee".  I did some
research at Google and downloaded a music file and the lyrics.
I couldn't find a copyright, composer, or any information about when
the song was created.  However, I was surprised to find so many
references to the tune.

I don't think it was ever made into a music roll.  It's not in the
Billings Rollography.  But, since I was asked to find out if it ever
was made into a roll, I'm doing just that.  Any leads will be greatly
