Lyrics
Album issue: RCA-LP12 "The Best of Irving Berlin's Songs from 'Mr. President' " LSP-2630 STEREO 1962
Also included within: RCA-LP12 "So It Goes" AFL1-4272 STEREO 1983
 
Notes: ~ Perry's recording of this song was re-released in the 1983 compilation "So It Goes"
more than twenty years following the original recording session in 1962. Apart from only slight
differences resulting from microphone technique and recording technology, his performance is
virtually indistinguishable from the new recordings within the 1981/82 compilation.
Many listeners were unaware that the recording had been made twenty years earlier.
