The Kinks – Lola (Live)

The Kinks – Lola (Live) lyrics

I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne
and it tastes just like cherry-cola
See-oh-el-aye 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
El-oh-el-aye 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
la-la-la-la 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
la-la-la-la Lola
la-la-la-la Lola

Well we drank champagne
and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up
and sat me on her knee
And said dear 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
La-la-la-la Lola
la-la-la-la Lola

Lola
la-la-la-la 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 want it to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
La-la-la-la Lola

Girls will be boys
and boys will be girls
It’s a mixed up
muddled up shook up world except for Lola
La-la-la-la Lola

Well I left home just a week before
And I’d never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola smiled and took me by the hand
And said dear boy I’m 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
La-la-la-la Lola
la-la-la-la Lola

Lola
la-la-la-la Lola
la-la-la-la Lola

Lola
la-la-la-la Lola
la-la-la-la Lola
