Prince "hey Louie louie". Best song ever?

Like how Tevin Campbell turned down "the p", seems Louie Louie turned down this track too. Unlike "the p", which is funny as hell, "hey louie louie" is just stupid. Tony M is all over it though, which no doubt sealed the songs doom.

The few Prince songs that did actualy end up on his album were kinda weak anyway, but damn, this song was just silly, and not in a good way. Yet, it does get stuck in my head sometimes neutral And Tony M just cracks me up lol

Lets relish in all its glory. Someone actually posted the lyrics!

Yeah, Louie’s rap - take 1
We got a funky one


Take me out 2 the ballpark - strike 1!
Louie Louie in the house
Come on y’all, get some
I’m the designated hitter in the house
So don't play the hold out
Tell 'em what I’m talkin’ about
Set it up - swingin’ - strike 2!
Whole house swingin’
People screamin' - ears ringin’
With the sound that I’m throwin’ down
Strike 3 - U’re out!
Dropped it in the first round


CHORUS:
Hey, Louie Louie (Go, go, go, go, go, go Louie, go)
Aw yeah
Hey, Louie Louie (Go, go, go, go, go, go Louie, go)


Game 1 of a 7 games series
Who’s up 2 bat? L-O-U-I-E
Now freeze, can everybody hear me?
Mic check - 1 2 3 - Ahem! Cool!
Now let me resume, make room
As I zoom 2 the charts with a hype tune
Step if U wanna with the squeeze play fly
But before U know it - another R.B.I.
Yeah


CHORUS


Time 2 switch - here comes a change-up
I’m kicking it at the park with an All-star line up
Comin’ with the new gears
Sure 2 hit the kind of record these execs are sure 2 benefit from
Yo, hold up P, gimme some
Put some more kick in that bass drum - boom!
This version makes me wanna get dumb
U got me juiced and I’m lookin' 4 the home run
Yeah


Hey Louie Louis (Go, go, go, go, go, go Louie, go)
Who’s in the house?
Hey Louie Louis (Go, go, go, go, go, go Louie, go)


Slide in with attention
I'm scoring a run, 4 which there is no prevention
Home field advantage don’t mean a thing
As long as U bring your swing with soul and feeling
Dig down deep - reach a little farther
Come correct, or don’t even bother
Sooner than later everybody will know my name
Louie Louie’s headed 4 the Hall of Fame - yeah!


CHORUS


Yo ladies, what’s the call?
Louie Louis’s in the house with the party y’all (Oh!)
Oh! Rollin’ up hard - this time flexin’
5-deep sitting in my Benz
4 those who diss and dismiss me
Try 2 write me off and say that I’m history
Before I even start, they said I’m through bookin’
Boy, I’m like Ball Park Franks - I'm plump when I’m cookin'


CHORUS

Tony M. ill
That man is responsible for screwing up many good Prince songs. Whenever that man started rapping I skipped to the next song. Annoying doesn't even start to describe Tony M.
love the one who is Love!

I like Tony M. Personally the whole NPG at that time.. with Michael B
Tony,Damin, Kirk, Tommy, Sonny, Levi, Mayte.. All alot of fun.
I went to MANY concerts in that time frame and they were all
FUN.....
Tony was SOO nice.. My husband and I danced next to him and
his girl up stairs at "Erotic City" one night.
He talked to us.. he was a cool dude.
I was SICK when that band broke up..
and I think "Louie Louie" is a fun song.. Kinda like "call the
Law" and "gangsta Glam" (i love that video!) P on skates and in
a "speedo with Suspenders.. sweet.. cool
