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
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 candle light
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
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
Well 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 wayfor 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
