This was written by the Memphis soul singer-songwriter Wendy Rene with her brother Johnny and recorded by their group the Drapels, although only Wendy is credited. The other two Drapels were Marianne Brittenum and Wilbur Mondie. At 17, Wendy received a contract as a solo artist at the same time Stax signed the Drapels. On this tune, Wendy is singing about the sometimes fleeting nature of love.
This was Wendy Rene's first and most popular recording. Her other big hit was "Bar-B-Q" in 1964.
That's Booker T. & the MG's as her backup band.
This is sampled in the Wu-Tang Clan's song "Tearz" (on the Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) album). A new generation came to appreciate Wendy's work through this and other samplings.

Jimi Hendrix opened for The Monkees on their 1967 tour, and it did not go well. The young, mostly female crowd shouted "Davy" when Hendrix sang the word "Lady" in "Foxy Lady" in honor of who they came to see: Monkees lead singer Davy Jones.
Stephens Stills played timbales on the Bee Gees hit, "You Should Be Dancing." He was in the next door studio laying down a Crosby, Stills and Nash album and could hear Saturday Night Fever being recorded. Stills recognized its potential to be a monster hit and he wanted to contribute.
