Firstly the artist credits here should be "Billy Ward And His Dominoes" as per the record--but since I'm just as guilty as Samp here (see below) let's pass on that one :)

The Battles history on this one makes truly bizarre reading

First it appeared--fleetingly--in the 1952 Singles Battle

Then later (just as fleetingly) in the Vocal Groups Encore Battle
