Music: William Harold Neidlinger (1863-1924)
Words: William Harold Neidlinger

Neidlinger was a composer, conductor, organist at St. Michaelís Church, New York City, and voice teacher, but his main interest was working with retarded children, and he founded a school for this purpose in East Orange, N.J. Originally published in 1912 in Neidlinger's native Brooklyn, the song has been popular ever since, particularly as a baritone solo, since it shows off the voice quite well and is not difficult to sing.
