I grew up singing this song with my father, along with Patti Page singing it, too. The words and music were written by Claire Rothrock, Milt Yakus and Allan Jeffrey back in 1956.
Have you been to Massachusetts? You'll discover a variety of quaint villages, like the one above.
Wikipedia says, "Cape Cod, often referred to locally as simply the Cape, is a cape in the easternmost portion of the state of Massachusetts, in the Northeastern United States."
Here's the song I uploaded on YouTube, just in case you're not familiar with it.
