Ya! Ya! - Lee Dorsey

Lee Dorsey is such a funky, funtime badass, and he's cool enough to have opened for the mighty Clash in 1980!  Dorsey is arguably the only musician who can rival the great Allen Toussaint. I think of him playing the Sundance Kid to Allen's Butch Cassidy. 
"Ya! Ya!" dates back to 1961, and was actually inspired by a children's nursery rhyme.  It's silly, simple, and undeniably cute. Enjoy.
