This was one of the songs on the Hollywood Bowl post the other day. This is the song Billy Bigelow sings in Carousel after finding out he is going to be a father. This was recorded a few years after the birth of Frank Sinatra, Jr. Mark Steyn, very appropriately, had it as a Father's Day song and #41 on his Sinatra Songs of the Century.
