You won't find this catchy song on most download sites.
It's a snappy little number about long lasting love.

With lyrics like: When your hair has turned to silver, I will love you, just the same, I will always call you sweetheart, that will always be your name...

The song pre-dates viagra by 50 years, and yt the writer anticipated loving her 'just the same' rather than trading her in for a younger model. Now that's romantic.

I haven't seen or heard of that many other records by the Jive-bombers, a cute play on words for the then post WWII
'dive bombers' that helped win the war.

50's groups had great names, and they were able to use
clever lyrics and double entendres without resorting to profanity.

Sadly, that kind of intelligent songwriting has died away.
