Extra Information Gershwin wrote this song along with four others (I Love You, She's Just a Baby, South Sea Isles, and Where East Meets West) for George White's Scandals. The show was a success and so were Gershwin's songs. The composer recorded the song in a piano roll (Duo-Art 1744) the same year.
