Lulu's Back in Town is a song written for the 1935 musical Broadway Gondolier. It was popularized in the mid-30s by Fats Waller, and in the 50s by Mel Tormé.
The reason for their distress becomes clear when Lulu appears -- she's the Beautiful Day Monster in a brown wig. Tony is delighted, and they enjoy a passionate whirl around the dance floor.
Tony and the Beautiful Day Monster performed another duet in the first season of Sesame Street -- "Windy," which also featured the monster in drag.
