Al Stillman added words to an instrumental composition that Henry Mancini had originally titled 'Tinpanola' and came up with this catchy song. It must have the easiest-to-learn lyrics in all of popular music: just the words 'I love you and don't you forget it,' over and over, with an occasional line that keeps count of the number of times the phrase has been said. It's a cute idea and you can almost see Perry's grin as he sings it.
