Lyrics
At the beginning of World War II, the War department, through the Army Services Forces Special Services Division, distributed thousands of shellac phonograph records (V DISCS) to Army Forces throughout the world. Shortly after the Army's program started, the U.S. Navy became involved in the program, appointing E.P. DiGiannantonio to run the Navy, Marine and Coast Guard programs.

Bandleader Charles 'Sunny' Clapp penned this charming old-fashioned melody in 1927. It was an immediate hit with vocal groups, especially barbershop quartets, who drained every bit of widespread harmony out of its pretty chords.  It has the sound and feeling of turn-of-the-century love songs, and Perry's direct, heartfelt vocal is in that same tradition.

( notes from "The Incomparable Como" Readers Digest UK compilation 1975 )

In December 1944, Perry Como began a long association with the Liggett and Meyers Tobacco Company and its "Chesterfield Supper Club" series on NBC Radio ( Monday to Friday, 7:00-7:15 P.M. ). During the V-Disc years, accompanying orchestras included those of Ted Steele, Lloyd Shaffer, Carl Kress and Mitchell Ayres. Ted Steele's Orchestra accompanied Perry on the Chesterfield broadcasts from December 11, 1944, through to July 27, 1945.
