Lola  Kinks



[----]by Ray Davies
E |
I met her in a club down in old Soho where they
A D |
drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry
E |A
cola C-O-L-A cola
|E
she walked up to me and she asked me to dance
|A D |
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said
E |A D |C D |E |E
Lola L-O-L-A Lola Lo lo lo lo Lo - la
|B7 |
Well, we drank champagne and danced all night
[F#7]Under electric candle light
|A
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
|A
and said "dear boy won't you come home with me?"
|E
Well, I'm not the world's most passionate guy,
|A D |
but when I looked in her eyes, well I almost fell for my
E |A D |C D |
Lola Lo lo lo lo Lo - la Lo lo lo lo Lo - la
E |A D |C D |E |E
Lola Lo lo lo lo Lo - la Lo lo lo lo Lo - la
|A E B
I pushed her away
|A E B
I walked to the door
|A E B
I fell to the floor
|E G#7 C#m
I got down on my knees
|B B13
Then I looked at her and she at me
|E
Well, that's the way that I want it to stay...
(That's enough; you get the idea. Yeah, I know I skipped a verse...)

LOLA- The Kinks
[C]   [D]   [E]   I[E] met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you dr[A]ink champagne and it ta[D]stes just like ch[A]erry C[E]ola
C-O-L-A Co[A]la[Asus]
She wa[E]lked up to me and she asked me to dance
I as[A]ked her her name and in a d[D]ark brown voice she s[A]aid L[E]ola
          [A]    [D]             [C]   [D]   [E]                                                     
L-O-L-A Lola la-la-la-la Lola

Well I[E]'m not the world's most physical guy
But when she sqeezed 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 but talked like a man
Oh my Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola

CHORUS #1:
Well we dr[B]ank champagne and danced all night
[F#m]Under electric candlelight
She pi[A]cked me up and sat me on her knee
And said "Dear boy, won't you co[B7]me home with me?"
Well I[E]'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

[E]                   [A]     [D]           [C]    [D]   [E]                                           
Lola la-la-la-la Lola la-la-la-la Lola

BRIDGE:
I pu[A]shed h[C#m]er aw[B]ay, I wa[A]lked t[C#m]o the d[B]oor
I f[A]ell t[C#m]o the f[B]loor, I got d[E]own [G#m]on my k[C#m]nees
Then I[B] 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
Girl 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
CHORUS #2:
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 that 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
