Lyrics

I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just 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 but 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
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
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’d left home just a week before
And I’d never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola smiled and 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

  17. justAneedlessBOI on May 12, 2021 at 5:10 pm

    The guy who wrote the lyrics, which are based on his real experiences, was once asked in an interview whether Lola was a man or trans, and he answered:
    "I don’t know, all I know is that Lola was all right"
    I always thought that was so beautiful

    Vincent Van Gogh pintou esta tela, já em Arles num Sanatório. Ele explica a sociedade Francesa em 12 signos.Tela " Girassóis " Tons de Amarelo, 1888. Umas em cima outras no meio e outras em baixo. Pintou 500 Telas Gloriosas, vi 2 no Masp. " O Carteiro Jovem em quase a sua totalidade em azul, estudem que tem muitos ensinamentos ? ".
    Porém existem infinitas telas de cestas de frutas, todas tem ensinamentos eternos . Prestem bem atenção nos detalhes, observem com calma, que as Altezas descobrem. Quanto mais bagagem de conhecimentos Universais melhor . Qualidades de Obras que valem 1 trilhão de Euros cada quadro.

    Where did grunge come from? Here’s your answer! Cool as shit!



  36. 0x777 on May 12, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    Fun fact: The BBC originally refused to play it. Not because of the "raunchy" lyrics later in the song, but for the first line. "I met her in a club down in old Soho
    , where you drink champagne and it tastes just like coca cola"

    That was advertising.

    And that was forbidden on BBC radio.

    They changed it to "cherry cola" and there wasn’t a problem anymore.

    So yes, the UK and the US speak the same language, but that’s where the similarities end.



  37. ben tedford on May 12, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    we named our bird Lola because we haven’t determined what it is.
    we think shes a lady though.



  38. Jeremy Stickle on May 12, 2021 at 5:34 pm

    I love this song!!



  39. Ernst 22 on May 12, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    I can still remember the title Lola when it was brand new. Back then, at the end of the 60s and beginning of the 70s, people danced a little differently than today, they had long hair and for the older people they were a "bum". My girlfriend and I went to the disco with a group. In the beginning, we sang along with the lyrics of LOLA as a group, then more and more words were missing, then we only sang Lola and Coca Cola, we had forgotten the rest of the lyrics. I can still remember my pretty friend ,because she danced and sang with me in a duet "Lola" and "Cola" in alternation .Singing the words Lola and Coca Cola of course in rhythm and the energetic dancing saved me over the evening, because I had to concentrate again and again and everyone from my group bought a round of Coke with rum once. It was a good thing that the Kinks played the song several times because it was so popular. Today I am 71 ,have it with the intervertebral disc and am happy that I was a youth in those days.
    Be happy about your youth – there are always good musicians and pretty dancers.
