This novelty song is a bright ditty, with Perry and the chorus having fun with the
interpolated 'Ah-hahs' and the frisky little melody. The tune was the 1954 brainchild
of writer Bob Merrill, whose accomplishments also include the scores for such hit
musicals as 'New Girl in Town' 'Take Me Along', 'Carnival', and 'Funny Girl'. Joe Reisman,
Perry's chief arranger and record producer during the mid- and late 1950s,
created this hit arrangement.
