If I Catch the Guy Who Wrote Poor Butterfly
"If I Catch the Guy Who Wrote Poor Butterfly" is a comic tune from 1917. Based on a song, "Poor Butterfly," from Puccini's opera "Madame Butterfly," the song showed up in a 1916 Broadway production, "The Big Show." The song became a hit, and this comic tune complains "that melody haunts me in my sleep, It seems to creep." Even in 1916, it seems, a song got stuck in one's head.
