She's A Lady was written by Paul Anka, who also wrote a 1959 hit for Annette Funicello, It's Really Love. Anka later reworked the melody and it became the theme song for The Tonight Show.

"Buss" as a synonym for kiss is believed to be either a blend of the French baiser and the Middle English verb kissen or an adaptation of the 16th-century Scottish Gaelic word bus, which meant "mouth or lips" and is also the word from which we derived "puss" as a slang word for a person's face.

So now I know why I also hated The Tonight Show theme.  Paul Anka!  (But I have to admit I did like "My Way.")

Yes, but which My Way did you prefer, Frank Sinatra's or Elvis Presley's? Elvis's version, released two months after he died in 1977, got to #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Sinatra's original peaked at #27 in 1969. Elvis's version also reached #2 on the country chart.
