NuGrape Song by the Hokum Scorchers

One of my favorite artists, Amy Crehore, is also in an old-timey band with her husband Lou. She writes on her blog:
Okay, this song is a jingle written for a brand of soda that came out in 1921 called NuGrape. The Hokum Scorchers are both singing with Lou playing the National guitar (the NuGrape Twins did the original version). Lou and Amy recorded this in 1995 for their "Feed the Kitty" tape. Have a listen and find out "what makes your lips go flippity-floppa" in 1926: Hokum Scorchers
