Wikipedia reports that the song, "I Cover the Waterfront" is the theme song from the 1933 film, based on the book of the same name by Max Miller. The song (which appears in the film only as an instrumental) was written by Johnny Green and Edward Heyman. The song has gone on to become a jazz standard, having been recorded by Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Billie Holiday, among others.
