Disco version?

PAUL MACKIEWICZ says: "I'm not the worlds most masculine man, but I know what I am, and I'm glad I'm a man AND SO IS LOLA"

To be honest, while I believe it's pretty clear the intention of the song is that Lola is really a man, that excerpt could simply mean that the singer is a man and that both the singer and Lola are glad for that; not necessarily that both the singer and Lola are men.

The song is about an experience Ray's brother Dave had - his new friend had a 5 o'clock shadow by the end of the night. Dave is bisexual, so it really didn't matter...

Rock bands will come and rock bands will go, but rock-n-roll' s gonna go on forever. Long live the Kinks

I'm glad I'm a man, and so is lola (glad he is a man).
So you saw this exact Lola 50+ years ago? SUUUURE
Why are people so uptight about what ray Davies has written?

The Percy version is a quirky instrumental , for what its worth.
Report as inappropriate
This live version is from "One For the Road" circa 1979/80. Why advertise it being from the Percy soundtrack, Pandora? This does a disservice to the Kinks. (they never correct the errors..)

Not many men will tell of their excursions with transvestite s . I commend the Kinks for this. That's definitely something I would've taken to the grave.

The version you have here comes from One for the Road, but you have it erroneously credited to the Kink Kronikles.

The little fabbot isn't attracted to a normal female but enjoys the company of a male-acting creature that is female in appearance only. And if he's as underage as he appears within the lyrics, then mr. Lola could be arrested as a pedophile too. The rest of us who came across Lola in the 1960s London pubs had a pretty good idea of what he was all about... and we kept our distance. Who would have ever guessed he would be immortalized in song.
