I met her in a club down in North Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry cola

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance

Ray Davies may have been the finest songwriter (music and lyrics) ever!

I first discovered a Lola at the tender age of 20, in Naples Italy.. the only english it could speak was...bl**jo b . . . No p**sy! No p**sy! These things were allowed to stand on the side of the street with their tits hanging out ... because they're men, not women!

The line has 2 meanings, " I'm glad I'm a man, and so is Lola".
It could also mean that she's glad he's a man.

Ray Davies is a supreme balladeer, addressing worldly issues. Gallon of Gas, I'm Falling, Demon Alcohol, Preservation I & II, Sunny Afternoon and on and on. Brilliant, simply brilliant!

Fascinating indeed, Amy.

I find it interesting that the version that plays is the coke-a-cola version, but the lyrics displayed are the cherry cola version.

um... this version is listed as on the wrong record. On "Percy" it is an instrumental version of Lola, not the single version (which is what's playing) which is from "Lola Vs Powerman..."

"weird al"'s version was f'n stupid ....
