Notes: ~ The melody of the song is taken from Chopin's "Fantaisie Impromptu in C# Minor."
Although introduced in 1917, it was featured in the 1946 Hollywood musical "The Dolly Sisters"
in which John Payne sang it. Perry Como then had a hit record and the revived song was on
"Your Hit Parade" for twelve weeks.
