Lyn "being" a nut

Apparently confused with I'm A Nut by Leroy Pullins, the song brought to life by Lyn Paul on the Live at the Royal Albert Hall LP is correctly credited on the video and DVD as Ever Since You Told Me That You Loved Me (I'm A Nut), sung in the early 1900s by Eddie Morton and Also by Tiny Tim and included on his album God Bless Tiny Tim.
