I like to collect sheet music of songs I remember from my childhood. I got this one about a month ago from my daughter, who has started a small business selling vintage items.
Dorothy McGuire of the McGuire Sisters passed away on Friday, September 7, 2012, at the age of 84. I believe that’s Dorothy at the top. Please correct me if I have that wrong.
I don’t have any specific memories connected to this song, except that I know I went around singing it as a little girl. I’m sure I heard it on the radio and on TV, as the McGuire Sisters made many television appearances. So many of the songs during the early 1950s had tunes and words that felt happy to my young ears. I still remember the tune and most of the words.
