Boodle Am Shake was recorded by The Dixieland Jug Blowers in 1926. You can hear their performance on You Tube.

It's difficult to be sure of the tune. Below is my impression of it and this sounds reasonable on my keyboard. I put it in Bb, which seems to be a comfortable key. There's a 4-bar Introduction, a 16-bar Verse and a 32-bar Chorus. The song has some amusing nonsense words. You can hear them on You Tube.
