Songfacts®:

  • In no way connected with the 1959 revue Swinging Down The Lane! this 1923 standard was written by American band leader Isham Jones with lyrics by Gus Kahn. Subtitled "An Old-Fashioned Song With a Fox Trot Swing," it is a fairly typical song of the big band era, and has been covered by among others, Frank Sinatra. >>
