Capo 1

A#  C D

  D
I met her in a club down in old Soho
          G                      C                     D
where you drink champagne and it tastes just like sherry cola
         G   Gsus4 G
C-o-l-a, cola

    D
She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
  G                           C                         D
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said Lola
         G    C             A#   A#  C  D
L-O-L-A, Lola,  Lo lo lo lo lola    
   
     D
Well I'm not the worlds most physical guy
             G
But when she squeezed me tight
           C                     D
She nearly broke my spine, oh my Lola
            G   Gsus4 G
Lo lo lo lo Lola
     D
Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand
        G                       C
Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man
      D
Oh my Lola
            G    C             A#    A# C  D   
Lo lo lo lo Lola   Lo lo lo lo Lola
 
        A7
Well we drank champagne and danced all night
E
Under electric candlelight
    G
She picked me up and sat me on her knee

And said 'Dear boy, won't you come home with me'

     D
Well I'm not the world's most passionate guy
           G                         C                  D
But when I looked in her eye, well I almost fell for my Lola
            G   C            A#   A#  C
Lo lo lo lo Lola Lo lo lo lo Lola
D                  G    C             A#    A# C    D  
Lola,  Lo lo lo lo Lola,  lo lo lo lo Lola

  G      D    A7
I pushed her away
  G      D      A7
I walked to the door

  G    D      A7
I fell to the floor
      D    F#m   Bm
I got down on my knees
     A7
Then I looked at her and she at me   

     D
Well that's the way that I want it to stay
      G                 C                  D
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
            G    Gsus4 G
Lo lo lo lo Lola
D
Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
       G                     C                         D
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world except for Lola
            G
Lo lo lo lo Lola

       A7
Well I left home just a week before
    E
And I'd never ever kissed a woman before
G
Lola smiled and took me by the hand

and said 'dear boy, I'm gonna make you a man'
   
     D
Well I'm not the worlds most passionate man
      G                      C
but I know what I am in the bed I'm a man
          D                 G    C             A#    A# C  
and so is Lola, lo lo lo lo lola   Lo lo lo lo Lola

D                 G    C             A#    A# C
Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola,  lo lo lo lo Lola
D                 G    C             A#    A# C
Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola,  lo lo lo lo Lola
D                 G    C             A#    A# C D
Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola,   o lo lo lo Lola
