Wodehouse's personal stationery of the period listed a song from this show, Our Little Way, as one of his 'recent successes', although it does not appear in the show's libretto, and Wodehouse's name does not appear as one of the lyricists on the title page of this full vocal score of the show.

With the inserted new number, Strolling and Patrolling, laid in.
