You can obviously google it so the answer is here (http://www.popularsong.org/forgotten-gem13.html). It is the only #1 pop single to have been co-written by a U.S. Vice President or winner of the Nobel Peace Prize.

If you visit the delightful Dawes House (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_G._Dawes_House) in Evanston, Illinois, you can see the piano on which this ditty was composed.
