'Blest if I believe such a Poll Parrot as you was ever learned to speak!'
"They call me the Fat Man
Because I weigh 200 Pounds."
A bit relative: He was only 5'4".
My favorite Fats Domino song for sure. I heard it on the Johnnie Otis Show from KPFK, Los Angeles. Johnnie used to spin platters of R&B from the late 1940s to the early 1960s every Monday night from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. I must have listened for twenty years. After I moved out of Dad's place in La Jolla, I remember that my buddy and I used to roll down to Windansea surfing beach to park in the famous lot and tune in the airwaves beaming down the coast from Glendale.It's a beautiful melody and a beautiful tribute to New Orleans. "I'll need two pairs of shoes just to walk away these blues."
