"Lola" by the Kinks

Intro:

[C] [D] [E]

Verse 1:

I [E]met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you [A]drink champagne and it [D]tastes just like
Cherry [E]cola, C - O - L - A [A]cola
She [E]walked up to me and she asked me to dance
And I [A]asked her her name and in a [D]dark brown voice
She said [E]"Lola, L - O - L - A [A]Lola [D]
La la la la [C]Lola" [D] [E]

Verse 2:

Well, [E]I'm not the world's most physical guy
But when she [A]squeezed me tight she nearly [D]broke my spine,
Oh, my [E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola
Well, [E]I'm not dumb, but I can't understand
Why she [A]walked like a woman and [D]talked like a man,
Oh, my [E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola, [D]
La la la la [C]Lola. [D] [E]

Well, we [B7]drank champagne and danced all night
[F#m]Under electric candle light
She [A]picked me up and sat me on her knee
And said, "Dear Boy, won't you come home with me?"

Verse 3:

Well, [E]I'm not the world's most passionate guy,
But when I [A]looked in her eyes, well, I [D]almost fell for my
[E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola [D]
La la la la [C]Lola [D]
[E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola [D]
La la la la [C]Lola [D] [E]

Bridge:


I [A]pushed [E]her a[B7]way
I [A]walked [E]to the [B7]door
I [A]fell [E]to the [B7]floor
I got [A]down [F#m]on my [C#m]knee
Then I [B7]looked at her and she at me

Verse 4:

Well, [E]that's the way that I want it to stay
And I [A]always want it to [D]be that way
For my [E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola
[E]Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It's a [A]mixed up, muddled up, [D]shook up world except for
[E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola

Well, [B7]I left home just a week before
[F#m]And I'd never kissed a woman before
But [A]Lola smiled and took me by the hand
And said, "Dear boy, I'm gonna make you a man!"

Verse 5:

Well, [E]I'm not the world`s most masculine man,
But I [A]know what I am and I'm [D]glad I'm a man and so is
[E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola [D]
La la la la [C]Lola [D]
[E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola [D]
La la la la [C]Lola [D] [E]
[E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola [D]
La la la la [C]Lola [D]
[E]Lola, la la la la [A]Lola [D]
La la la la [C]Lola [D] [E]
