Written by Frank Loesser, this is the first song in the 1947 comedy The Perils Of Pauline which is based on the life of actress Pearl White. It is performed by Betty Hutton as the starstruck Pearl in a sweatshop. The theme of the song is that unless she gets out of there, the sewing machine will drive her nuts. Fortunately she does get out of there, pronto.
