Try It On Your Piano

Album: Great American Composers (1910)

Songfacts®:

  • "Try It On Your Piano" is another surprisingly risqué song by Irving Berlin, doubly so considering it was published in 1910. Berlin was hired by Ted Snyder as staff lyricist in 1909, but this is an early solo composition by the Dean of American Songwriters. Copyrighted July 7, 1910, it was published by the Ted Snyder Company with a cover that makes its meaning clear, a duet that involves making more than music. >>
