Album: The Lion Sleeps Tonight (1961). Charted: 11 1. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. The success of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" didn't ensure long-term recording security for The Tokens as a singing group. They didn't have a singing/recording contract, but they DID have a producing contract! After "Lion," members of the group had producing success with the Chiffons ("He's So Fine," "One Fine Day," "Sweet Talkin' Guy"), the Happenings ("See You in September," "My Mammy") and Dawn ("Knock Three Times," "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree"). Dazed by the success of the African fever the Tokens again tried to stir the ethnic magic by releasing the African "B wa Nina" (Pretty Girl), but this time the Tokoloshe clamped the fever. Tokens played on Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited. Solomon died of kidney failure in 1963 having received almost nothing for his song.
