The swinging title track, a pop standard by Artie Lane, Jack Beekman and Leo Fuld, was first introduced in 1947 by its co-writer Artie Lane. It was recorded that year by Louis Prima, Benny Goodman, and even doo wop group The Ravens. It gained full Yiddish verse and chorus when sung in 1954 by multi-lingual star Fuld. In 2006, Robert Smigel of “Saturday Night Live” fame created his own wild takeoff. This Metropolitan Klezmer version features horn section shout chorus by Debra Kreisberg and powerful vocal performance by Melissa Fogarty.
