English term or phrase: kane
I'll wear a top hat and kane.

I'm not sure about the spelling of "kane" since this is from a song (What do I care for a dame) and I don't have the text.
Does anybody have a suggestion? I thought about using Frack or Smoking...
German translation:Stock, Gehstock
"Kane" heißt doch wahrscheinlich "cane", d.h. "Stock" bzw. "Gehstock".
