The lyrics were written by Jack Brooks with music by Harry Warren. The song first appeared in the 1953 movie The Caddy
, starring Martin and his comedy partner Jerry Lewis. In his autobiography
, Lewis said that when he and Dean were making The Caddy
, the writers left Dean with little to do. Knowing this would increase their already strained relationship, Jerry went behind Dean's back and asked songwriter Harry Warren to write a hit song for Dean to sing in the movie. This was the result.
