Louis Prima Quotes:

King Louie: [singing] Now, I'm the king of the swingers, whoa / The jungle V.I.P. / I've reached the top and had to stop / And that's what's botherin' me / I wanna be a man, Man Cub / And stroll right into town / And be just like the other men / I'm tired of monkeyin' around.

Louis Prima Facts
Among his many accolades, with such recordings as "Jump Jive And Wail" written by Prima in 1939, and " Just A Gigolo"/"I Ain't Got Nobody" , recorded in 1957, he is considered by many as one of the founding fathers of rock 'n roll.

His music transcends many genres, he wrote with Barbara Belle and Anita Leonard, the standard "A Sunday Kind of Love", a hit for Ella Fitzgerald in 1947 and later many others from The Harptones in 1953 (Do Wop) to Reba McEntire in 1988 (Country and Pop).
