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

  1. Your post is fabulous and I want to compliment you on your luminous skin tone, your arms and shoulders look so touchable. Those are both very sexy poses and I’m glad you have found the kink that woks for you. (so glad I inspired you to join in with #WW – more please!)
