The song was written by Bob Merrill for the American singer Rosemary Clooney under a recording deadline. Yet it became a hit for Clooney, reaching number 10 in the Billboard Hot 100 and number one in the UK Singles Chart early in 1955. The writer wrote the song on a napkin in an Italian restaurant in New York City and then used the wall pay-phone to dictate the melody.
