LOLA
----
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 
 E
I met her in a club down in old Soho
            A                      D                A     E
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry Cola
          A  Asus
C-O-L-A Cola
      E
She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
    A                          D                    A    E
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said Lola
          A   D            C  D  E
L-O-L-A Lola la-la-la-la Lola

      E
Well I'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:
          B
Well we drank champagne and danced all night
F#m
Under electric candlelight
      A
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
                                B7
And said "Dear boy, won't you come home with me?"

      E
Well I'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:
    A     C#m  B       A     C#m    B
I pushed her away, I walked to the door
   A    C#m    B            E   G#m    C#m
I fell to the floor, I got down on my knees
      B
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
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
