    wow, i must be really dense, but i never realized that this song is about transvetites, lol. kinda funny actually..


    Lola
    The Kinks

    I met her in a club down in North 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 name and in a dark brown voice she said, "Lola"
    L-O-L-A Lola, lo lo lo Lola

    Well, I'm not the world's most physical guy,
    But when she squeesed me tight she nearly broke my spine
    Oh my Lola, lo lo lo Lola

    Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand
    Why she walks like a woman and talks like a man
    Oh my Lola, lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo Lola

    Well, we drank champagne and danced all night,
    Under electric candlelight,
    She picked me up and sat me on her knee,
    She 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,
    Lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo Lola

    I pushed her away. I walked to the door.
    I fell to the floor. I got down on my knees.
    I looked at her, and she at me.

    Well that's the way that I want it to stay.
    I always want it to be that way for my Lola.
    Lo lo lo Lola.

    Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls.
    It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world,
    except for Lola. Lo lo lo Lola. Lo lo lo Lola.

    Well I left how just a week before,
    and I never ever kissed a woman before,
    Lola smiled and took me by the hand,
    she said, "Little boy, gonna make you a man."

    Well I'm not the world's most masculine man,
    but I know what I am and that I'm a man,
    so is Lola.
    Lo lo lo Lola. Lo lo lo Lola.

    Wow it's the first thing I noticed! And usually the first time I hear a song a hardly ever listen to the lyrics... anyways, Lola is a great song (I love The Kinks :) )

    Oh, thank you, but which one, the avatar one? I think I did a great job with it - I cut my face on a bigger picture of me and I did some effects on it so it'd look more original :) But if you're talking about the signature one... well that's Andy Warhol's art.

    Yoda- by Wierd Al Yankovic


    I met him in a swamp down in Dagoba
    Where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda
    S O D A, soda

    I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
    I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said "Yoda"
    Y O D A, Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Well, I've been around, but I ain't never seen
    A guy who looks like a muppet, but he's wrinkled and green
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Well, I'm not dumb, but I can't understand
    How he can lift me in the air just by raising his hand
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Well, I left home just a week before
    And I've never ever been a Jedi before
    But Obi Wan, he set me straight, of course
    He said, "Go to Yoda and he'll show you the Force"

    Well I'm not the kind that would argue with Ben
    So it looks like I'm gonna start all over again
    With my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    So I used the Force
    I picked up a box
    I lifted some rocks
    While I stood on my head
    Well, I won't forget what Yoda said

    He said, "Luke, stay away from the darker side
    And if you start to go astray, let the Force be your guide"
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    "I know Darth Vader's really got you annoyed
    But remember, if you kill him, then you'll be unemployed"
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    Well, I heard my friends really got in a mess
    So I'm gonna have to leave Yoda, I guess
    But I know that I'll be coming back some day
    I'll be playing this part 'till I'm old and gray

    The long-term contract that I had to sign
    Says I'll be making these movies till the end of time
    With my Yoda
    Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoda

    I always want it to be that way for my Lola."
