Isn't there a more perfect...

...pop song than the Kinks' "Lola"?

And then I found out that it was about a tranny. Sigh.

Sample lyic: "Well I'm not the world's most physical guy...but when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine...Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand...why she walked like a woman and talked like a man." And then this: "Girls will be boys and boys will be girls...it's a mixed-up, muddled-up shook-up world (except for Lola)."

And here's the kicker: "But I know what I am I'm glad I'm a man and so is Lola."

Yep, pretty clear to me now. OK, fine...but it's a damn good little song anyway. Even if it's Eddie Murphy's most favoritest song ever.
