The melody that plays when the man pitches the singing frog to an agent is an original composition by Milt Franklyn. It was re-used in A Star Is Bored
(1956) and as the title card for Go Fly a Kit
(1957). See more

Hello, my baby / hello, my honey / hello, my ragtime gal. / Send me a kiss by wire / baby, my hearts on fire / if you refuse me / honey, you'll lose me / then you'll be left alone / Oh baby, telephone and tell me I'm your own.
