Al Hoffman and Dick Manning also provided Perry with this peppy novelty. The perky melody first saw the light of day as one of the themes in Emmanuel Chabrier's España rhapsody. Hoffman and Manning turned the Spanish piece into a new fangled love song, and Perry and the Ray Charles Singers had a ball recording it.
