Lola by The Kinks written by Ray Davies

This week the prompt for #WickedWednesday is to use a song title as the  prompt and the title of your post. I must admit i haven’t particpated in Wicked Wed. But this song has influnced my life as i always wanted to be like Lola.

Link to the song

Here are the words :

Lola

I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne
And it tastes just like cherry cola [LP-version: Coca-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
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
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 –
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
That’s the way that I want it to stay
And I’ll 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,
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 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

 

Words that really hit homem for me:

“I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
Then I looked at her and she at me
That’s the way that I want it to stay
And I’ll always want it to be that way for my Lola”

and of course boys will be girls and girls wiil be boys

so here i am in this mixed up world on my knees and not
humbly
submitted
