This is a Yiddish song originally composed by Jacob Jacobs (lyricist) and Sholom Secunda (composer) for a Yiddish musical, I Would if I Could
, in 1932. Secunda then sold the rights to his song for $30. Sammy Cahn heard the song and wrote English lyrics in 1937 for the Andrew Sisters and it became a big hit.
