Louis Prima

Louis Prima (December 7, 1910 – August 24, 1978) was an American singer, actor, songwriter, and trumpeter. Prima rode the musical trends of his time, starting with his seven-piece New Orleans style jazz band in the 1920s, then successively leading a swing combo in the 1930s, a big band in the 1940s, a Vegas lounge act in the 1950s, and a pop-rock band in the 1960s. In each of his musical endeavors, he incorporated his exuberant personality into his act.[citation needed] more »

The stars are gonna' twinkle and shine, 
This evening about a quarter to nine.
My lovin' arms are gonna' tenderly twine 
Around you around a quarter to nine.

I know I won't be late 'cause at half past eight I'm gonna' hurry there.
I'll be waiting where the lane begins, waiting for you on needles and pins.

And then the world is gonna' be mine 
This evening about a quarter to nine
