With the help of a very kind person on the NY Public Library phone research line I discovered that "Nutsey Fagan" was a popular song of 1923.

"Nutsey Fagan, Nutsey Fagan, you're the guy for me!"

When I found out who wrote it, and where I can get the sheet music, you'll be the first to know. Hell, make an appointment and I'll sing it for you.

I only see one mention of this on the Internet:

Billy Rose, a "collaboration with others"

By the way, are you and this person one and the same?

"I've been searching too, and I've found it at last!
The correct spelling is "Nutsey Fagan" and it's a popular song of 1923--"Nutsey Fagan, Nutsey Fagan, you're the guy for me!" I'm trying to find out who wrote and get a copy of the sheet music."

Yes, that's me, Ken Atkatz aka Mr. Fussbudget.

Now I'm going to follow your link, and later, when I have time I'll check with the NYPL music collection.

Don't bother with my link, it provides no further information.
We still have time, do you want me to edit out your name and email address? Sorry about doing that.
I just realized that the link goes there anyway, so the point is probably moot.

I called the NYPL music collection, and as often happens there, I learned that their copy couldn't be found. They suggested I come in and go through the uncatalogued materials. Yuh.


So then I went to the website you found, The Museum of American History in Washington, and asked if they could fax or pdf me a copy of the song. They said they'd get back to me, and now I'm waiting. I'll post the response when I get it.
