She Wouldn't Do
(What I Asked Her To)
Original Memphis Five
Feat. Billy Jones
Recorded in New York City on December 4th 1923 featuring Billy Jones vocals, Phil Napoleon trumpet, Miff Mole trombone, Jimmy Lytell clarinet, Frank Signorelli piano, and Jack Roth drums.
*"She Wouldn't Do (What I Asked Her To)" was written by Phil Bouteje, Sam Gottlieb, and Al Burt.
Composed by famed American pianist and songwriter Phil Boutelje, the lyrics to this song are quite humorous though somewhat degrading to women. For this reason the song would never go un-scrutinized by audiences of today, however back in 1923 it was just fine … Other works to Bouteje's credit include "Fiddle-Dee-Dee-Dee", "China Boy" and "Lonesome Little Doll".
