"Three Coins in the Fountain" is a film and also its theme song. :)

Eden and Xiao Zhu: Thanks Xiao Zhu for explaining. That was an old 1954 movie!! I remember hearing the song played on the radio many years later. Of cousre, there was also the Chinese-dubbed version that had nothing to do with the story. It goes like: 『飛哥跌落坑渠,飛女睇見就流淚.....』where 飛哥、飛女refer to "teddy boys/girls" (roughly meaning teenagers who hang out - as those in West Side Story).
