    This song actually dates back to the end of the big band era/ The song was written by Freddie Slack and recorded by Slack with Ella Mae Morse in 1946 it was covered the same year by The Andrews Sisters.

    There have been a bunch of subsequent covers with Chuck Miller having a top ten pop hit with the song around 1955. While I am a big fan of AATW (and I like their recording), I think that the Ella Mae Morse and Chuck Miller recordings are far superior
