A song from the pen of one of the top American theatre composers of the 20th century, Jerome Kern, the original version featured in the 1934 London musical flop Three Sisters. The song was revived the following year for the musical film Roberta, with new lyrics by Fields and McHugh (replacing those by Oscar Hammerstein, but retaining the title).

Der Song stammt aus der Feder von Jerome Kern, einem der besten amerikanischen Theaterkomponisten des 20. Jahrhunderts. Die Originalversion wurde 1934 im Musical Three Sisters aufgeführt, das in London ein Misserfolg war. Im darauffolgenden Jahr wurde der Song für den Musikfilm Roberta mit einem neuen Text von Fields und McHugh zu neuem Leben erweckt (Der ursprüngliche Text von Oscar Hammerstein wurde bis auf den Titel umgeschrieben).
