Sorry to bring up such an old topic, but I recently finished Mike Zwerin's book Swing Under the Nazis and ran across a passage mentioning this tune. The author is discussing some Viennese jazz musicians from the '40's:

Artur Motta, nicknamed Tutur, was under forced labour in Germany until being returned home to Vienna in 1943, after which he played in a band with Ernst Landl and Herbert Mitteis in a hotel bar in the Centrum. The German officers who came to dance often asked them to 'play it hot'. They requested 'Cootie Cootie' and 'Joseph Joseph', an Andrews Sisters hit based on a Yiddish song which was forbidden because, in addition, Joseph was Goebbels' first name. The title had been changed to 'She Does Not Want Flowers and Chocolate'; and 'St. Louis Blues' was called 'Sauerkraut' in Vienna.
