Notes: ~ Perry often recorded songs between Christmas and New Year's Day
and December, 1959, was no exception. This song was recorded on the
same day as a song which turned out to be one of Perry's most novel hits,
a song punning the names of American "states" which turned out to be more
popular in England than anywhere else. Along with "Delaware", he recorded the flip side
of the single, "I Know What God Is", and two other songs which were never released,
"I Can't Remember" (above) and a song titled "Mandolino".
