Lyrics
 NOT RELEASED 
 
This is one of only two songs Perry recorded with The Ames Brothers during the Summer of 1954 just one month before he recorded one of his most successful popular songs "Papa Loves Mambo" a song which the Ames Brothers are said to have considered. Why these songs were unreleased is unknown but in recent years one of the RCA engineers offered the opinion that the voice mix between Perry and Ed Ames wasn't as good as expected. In his opinion, however, the recordings as a whole were well done.
