I based the song sheet on the Frankie Lymon version of the song, without the key change, so you can play along in the same key in GCEA tuning for the first half!

Benny Goodman and his Orchestra (with vocalist Helen Ward) recorded the song. Frankie Lymon performed it live on television on several occasions, including twice in 1957 on The Ed Sullivan Show. He also had a hit with his recording of the song in the United States, reaching #20 that year, as well as #24 in the UK. It was released as a recording with his group the Teenagers, but was, in fact, a solo recording. It was also covered by many others including Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Frank Sinatra, etc.
