Madness - Lola Lyrics




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 L O L A, Lola

And I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why she walks like a woman and talks like a man
Lola, L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, Lola

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 I almost fell for my Lola
L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, Lola

Lola, L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, 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

Well, that's the way that I wanted to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
L O L A, Lola

Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shooked up world
Except for Lola, L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, Lola

Lola, L O L A, Lola, la, la, la, la, Lola

Well, I left home just a week ago
And I'd never 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, I'm, I'm man
And so is Lola

  1. Qbeart

    Surprising find this version by Madness. Cool!!

  2. Maude Mathilde H

    Wow! Was just talking to a friend about how Madness and The Kinks have a similar vibe, and just found this. I recall an old interview with Ray Davies in which he said he liked Madness.

    You Cant Not Like Madness

    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 but 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 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

  7. OuWaKaWoOh

    2 years ago while I was searching for a particular reagge song on yt I came across this one. I liked how it sounded. I heard it many times since then but never really listent to the lyrics (I'm French)just thinking it was about a girl named Lola. So, I was cleaning my house with the music out loud, this song came out, and I don't know why today I really paid attention to the lyrics, and all along I was like... wait... what?... Is he talking about a guy?... I didn't hear the last words. I was confused so I decided to check the lyrics and BOOM! haha

    Tim

    +OuWaKaWoOh
    Madness cover. was an original song by the kinks, kind of before its time.

    OuWaKaWoOh

    +Tim D. I knew it was a cover but I never looked for the original song. I just listened to it after seeing your comment and I really like it. Thanks.

    Damon Albarn

    Yeah I understand you. I listen the original version everyday and one day my brother saw the Lyrics and now it's weird the hear it. I'm from "mexique"

  8. Lola Filana

    no., she just learned how to wear the pants., being the king of her own castle. Or so she thought. Or still is. who knows

  9. omarmoon57

    Is Lola a dude

    futureman1400

    @omarmoon57 transexual most likely (same thing).

    flowercrowningyou

    @futureman1400 no, not exactly the same thing. Lola is probably born in a male body, but she isn't one.

    Guillaume Laplanche

    So is Caitlyn Jenner

  10. martin meier

    Pritty good Stiff (Hahahaha L.O.L.) (Its BeDDers Mark Bedford, yep.by the way (B.T.W.) and yep they where all sharp on Dangermans).

  11. sacha wilson

  18. xXjuliexbearXx

  19. makiavelli999

    Cheerry COOOLA!

  20. Smiddy Fiveonefive

    Seeing Madness tomorrow! Cannot wait!

  21. Joan Ramis

    Sickkk but the original (the kinks) is betterr

  22. Applinator

    what bout Germany? they ship more than Greece by quite a bit....

  23. Largactyl Kid

    Where have I said Greece has no shipping?I suggest you re read my post.Im saying relying on Tourism,little or no industry & SHIPPING ALONE, then there will be problems.My country too relies on Tourism,little or no industry & banking as a large part of our income,so there are similarities.Maybe I didnt word it too well? Im well aware of Greece having one of the biggest registered shipping fleets in the World,but often these are just flags of 'convenience',just like Liberia the rules are lax.

  24. steve anon

    lola lola lola cherry cola xxx

  25. Klaudine Klau

    spitzenmäßig =)

  26. Largactyl Kid

    No.Dont eat anything they serve in Greek restaurants...I dont take any notice of the 'News'.Thats just propaganda.Knowing something about European economics helps though.Any country with feckless inhabitants who rely on Tourism with little or no industry & shipping,which is full of dodgy business practices, along with a ridiculous public sector will eventually get into trouble.Unfortunately Greece going bankrupt will hit my country hard too, as we have no industry now & rely on banking crims!

  27. ΠΑΡΙΣΗΣ ΓΙΩΡΓΟΣ

    you don't know nothing my good friend about my country. Don't eat what they serve you in the news!!!!!!!!

  28. Largactyl Kid

    You need people to start paying their taxes & stop all the corruption in your country.Thats the kind of revolution you need.Youre country may then start to sort itself out?

  29. Jean-Marie Martin

    @dog2son ROTFLMMFAO!!!AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!THIS IS TOO FUNNY!!!LOL!!

  30. ThePadlar

    madness+the kinks=England as its best.
