This is not a love song but a tribute song of sorts, and a novelty song, although it may also include a bit of double entendre for those with "sophisticated" minds. The Henry alluded to is the great industrial genius and founder of the Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford (1863-1947). Ford's Tin Lizzie, officially the Ford Model T, was the first affordable automobile. First manufactured in 1907, Ford once said "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black". In 1928, the Model T was superseded by the Model A, which prompted Walter O'Keefe to compose this song.
A jaunty, jazzy number, it was widely recorded, including by Irving Kaufman, the duo of Billy Jones & Ernest Hare, and on the other side of the Atlantic by Jack Hylton & His Orchestra.
