You left out the opening, on your Suzy recapitulation, Rapaire. It's a musical dialog between two hoofers in straw hats:

I've got a brand new gal, her name is Suzy!
(Suzy?? That's a name that doesn't interest me!)
Maybe her name
Sounds rather plain.
(Then what can her attraction be?????)

This is from memory as it played on a half-inch thick 78RPM disk on our old Victrola in Maine. Some of the records only had recording on one side, they were so old. We had The Two Black Crows, Jimmy Durante singing Bill Bailey, and an original recording of the horse race "...Aaaaand Beetlebaum...." shtick.
