According to The Stage (“Song Notes,” 12 November 1914, p. 20), “Beattie and Babs are making a hit at the Ardwicke Empire with Fred Godfrey and Bennett Scott’s ‘You’ve Got Me And I’ve Got You’ [and]...Fred Barnes made a success in Hull last week with no fewer than three Star numbers [including] ‘You’ve Got Me And I’ve Got You’....These numbers will loom large in pantomime this season.” Some months later, The Stage reported that “Fred Barnes, who is at the Hippodrome, Norwich, this week, is finding [the song] as successful in the provinces as it was in London” (“Song Notes,” The Stage, 29 April 1915, p. 21).
