Lolita Lyrics

Would you be mine, would you be my baby tonight?
Could be kissing my fruit punch lips in the bright sunshine
'Cause I like you quite a lot, everything you got, don't you know?
It's you that I adore, though I make the boys fall like dominoes

Kiss me in the D-A-R-K dark tonight
D-a-r-k do it my way
Kiss me in the P-A-R-K park tonight
P-a-r-k let them all say

Hey Lolita, hey
Hey Lolita, hey
I know what the boys want, I'm not gonna play
Hey Lolita, hey
Hey Lolita, hey
Whistle all you want but I'm not gonna say

No more skipping rope, skipping heart beats with the boys downtown
Just you and me feeling the heat even when the sun goes down

I could be yours, I could be your baby tonight
Topple you down from your sky forty stories high
Shining like a God, can't believe I caught you and so
Look at what I bought, not a second thought, oh, Romeo

Kiss me in the D-A-R-K dark tonight
D-a-r-k do it my way
Kiss me in the P-A-R-K park tonight
P-a-r-k let them all say

Hey Lolita, hey
Hey Lolita, hey
I know what the boys want, I'm not gonna play
Hey Lolita, hey
Hey Lolita, hey
Whistle all you want but I'm not gonna say

No more skipping rope, skipping heart beats with the boys downtown
Just you and me feeling the heat even when the sun goes down

I want my cake and I want to eat it too
I want to have fun and be in love with you
I know that I'm a mess with my long hair
And my suntan, short dress, bare feet
I don't care what they say about me, what they say about me
Because I know that it's L-O-V-E
You make me happy, you make me happy
And I never listen to anyone

Let them all say

Hey Lolita, hey
Hey Lolita, hey
I know what the boys want, I'm not gonna play
Hey Lolita, hey
Hey Lolita, hey
Whistle all you want but I'm not gonna say

No more skipping rope, skipping heart beats with the boys downtown
Just you and me feeling the heat even when the sun goes down

Lolita Meanings

It's a song, I like to believe, from the point of view of Lolita, the well-known character from Vladimir Nabokov who was 12 in the book and in the movie adaptation her age was changed to 14. She developed a relationship with her mother's boyfriend and she was his perdition. The girl was simply wild and ended up leaving with another man. He spent years chasing her, thinking that she got abducted. Here, in the song, it's that playful spirit that Lolita had, which states that everything to her is a game, even love. So when grown ups fall in love, she simply doesn't feel the same and toys with them.
