Lola

SONG COMPOSERS, LYRICS AND BACKGROUND

LYRICS

I met her in a club down in Old Soho
Where you drink champagne
And it tastes just like cherry 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, la, la, la, la, 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 L O L A, Lola

And I’m not dumb but I can’t understand
Why she walks like a woman and talks like a man
Lola, L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, Lola

We drank champagne and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
And 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 I almost fell for my Lola
L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, Lola

Lola, L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, Lola

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

Well, that’s the way that I wanted to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
L O L A, Lola

Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shooked up world
Except for Lola, L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, Lola

Lola, L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, Lola

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

Well, I’m not the world’s most masculine man
But I know what I am, I’m, I’m man
And so is Lola
