“I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles” Sheet Music

Description (Brief)
This sheet music is for the song “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles.” The song was written and composed by Jaan Kenbrovin and John William Kellette and published by Jerome H. Remick and Co. in 1919. “Jaan Kenbrovin” is actually a pseudonym for the writing group of James Kendis, James Brockman, and Nat Vincent. The cover features a blue center with a brown frame, and an illustration of a young girl in the center surrounded by floating soap bubbles. The song was a major Tin Pan Alley hit, and even became the club anthem of the English Premier League team West Ham United.
