Not really music for a silent film. Still, thought some might enjoy this 1915 recording courtesy of the Library of Congress and the National Jukebox.

There is at least one film in which that tune is used. It is played briefly in the score for SHOW PEOPLE (MGM, 1928) during the scene in which Charlie Chaplin appears.

Here's a recording of a vocal version:
