    Between ‘If I Knew You Were Coming I'd've Baked a Cake' and ‘The Hula Hoop Song,' she started and ended her Top 40 career with novelty songs.
    She had her biggest success by bowdlerizing the lyrics of Etta James' ‘Roll with Me, Henry' to create ‘Dance with Me, Henry.'
    Her father died when she was six months old and she spent the first seven years of her life in an orphanage, separated from her three siblings.
    She said the highlight of her career was performing for Israeli soldiers in 1949, shortly after the end of the first Arab-Israeli war.
    She was a featured performer at the wedding of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier (1956).
