I met her in a club down in old Soho
          A                      D                       E
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry Cola
        A    Asus4 A 
C-O-L-A Cola

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
  A                           D                         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

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

        B
Well we drank champagne and danced all night

Under electric candlelight

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, well 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

  A      E    B      A      E      B
I pushed her away, I walked to the door
  A    E      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
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 "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 that I'm a man
But so is Lola
La-la-la-la Lola, la-la-la-la Lola
Lola, la-la-la-la Lola, la-la-la-la Lola (repeat and fade)
