In May 1934 Clarence Williams, a African American music publisher and composer, testified at the $250,000 lawsuit of Helen (Boop-a-Doop) Kane told the Supreme Court Justice McGoldrick in Manhattan today that back in 1915 he invented “Hot Licks.”  Which went mostly “What-Da-De-Da.”  with an occasional Boop thrown in by accident. The witness said he had invented the “Hot Licks” when he ran out of words and music.
