This catchy little tune was written by Italian Composer Piero Umiliani. It was originally written for and used in a Swedish soft-porn movie called "Sweden - Heaven and Hell". The song hit the US charts in 1969, peaking at #55 on 10/4/69. It has been covered by the Muppets, Cake, Hot Butter, and Lipstique, among others.
