The Kinks - Lola
Tekst en muziek: Ray Davies
(1970)






I met her in a club down in Old Soho
While you drink champagne and it tastes like Coca Cola
C-O-L-A, Cola



She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said: “Lola”
L-O-L-A, Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola



Well, I’m not the world’s most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight, she nearly broke my spine, oh my Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola



Well, I’m not dumb, but I can’t understand
Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man, oh my Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola



Well, we drank champagne and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
She said: “Little boy, won’t you come home with me”



Well, I’m not the world’s most passionate guy
But when I looked in her eyes, well, I almost fell for my Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola



I pushed her away
I walked to the door
I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
Well, I looked at her and she at me



That’s the way that I want it to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola



Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world, except for Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola



Well, I left home just a week before
And I’d never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola smiled, took me by the hand
She said: “Little boy, gonna make you a man”



Well, I’m not the world’s most masculine man
But I know what I am and I’m glad I’m a man and so is Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola



Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
Lola
Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
Lola
