    My vote for Layla is the original Derek and the Dominos version. Not the unplugged version.

    Both I listen on the radio today.

    Lola, I like the best, without understanding.

    A mystery,perhaps.

    well, the situation you don't want to be in is where Lola has got you on your knees.

    This thread made me think of my favorite Police lyric: "He starts to shake, he starts to cough, just like the old man in that book by Nabakov."

    Hey, the thread was pretty random already.

    By the way, I voted for "Lola."

    The Police rule.

    Ever see the Misheard Lyrics page, you know, that list of what people thought the lyrics are? Hilarious sometimes -- example, from the lyric above, you gotta sing it:

    Just like the/old man who/got bit by an apricot.

    And of course the chorus: Don't stand so/ colostomy.

    The best one has got to be the Clash's 'Rock the Casbah' though. Always has me in stiches.

    Most of the song, it is implied that Lola is female. However, the last lines are: "I know what I am/ I'm a man/ And so is Lola."

    So I cocluded Lola was a transvestite. Just a thought.

    Yes, the song is about a transvestite. That's why it's so funny.
