Everybody do the Michigan Rag
Everybody likes the Michigan Rag
Every Mame and Jane and Ruth
From Weehawken to Duluth
Slide, ride, glide the Michigan
Stomp, romp, pomp the Michigan
Jump, clump, pump the Michigan Rag
That lovin’ rag!

Yes. It is. I have watched this many many many times. My favourite part is when he’s trying to get the frog to dance for the agent and he’s flipping its legs up with his fingers. And then he tries to make it smile.

Ken Harris’ real name was Karyl Ross Harris. In the beginning he was Karyl Ross Harris. Then he changed his name to Karol Ross Harris and then to Ken Harris. The reason is people had a hard time with the spelling. So he goes by “Ken.”
