Somehow I mixed this up. It was supposed to be Big John Khat and
the Highland Blues Band's version. Not Louis Prima's version.
Although the key and chords are correct. My bad. KK.

Re-did under my band's name. Our version will differ
from any of the others. It's just the way we arranged it.
Sorry for the confusion. KK.

For 35,000 hits this was a five star rating. Now some boob's gone and screwed it up because they thought this should be David Lee Roth's song.
This thing's been around since the 1920's and there have myriad versions
of it, D.L. Roth's was only one of many. KK.
