Today’s gender observation of the day goes to two amazing new songs by Kesha. What a comeback after her trials! The first is a beautiful song for all survivors who experienced physical and mental abuse out there. The second is just pure girl power. I could listen to them all day! Enjoy!

Girls will be boys and boys will be girls

Many thanks to my colleagues who introduced this song to me today! Several interesting gender references!

Kinks – Lola 1973

Here are the lyrics:

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

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice
she said Lola L.o.l.a. Lola
La La La La Lola

Well, I’m not the world’s most physical guy,
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
oh my Lola, la-la la-la Lola
Well, I’m not dumb, but I can’t understand
Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man
oh my Lola, la-la la-la Lola
La-la la-la Lola

Well we drank champagne and danced all night
under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knees
said good 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, well, I almost fell for my Lola
la-la la-la Lola,
La-la la-la Lola

Lola, la-la la-la Lola
la-la la-la Lola

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

That’s the way, that I want it to stay
And I always wanted it to be that way for my Lola
la-la la-la Lola,
Girls will be boys and boys will be girls,
It’s a mixed up, mouled up, shook up world except for Lola
la-la la-la Lola

Well, I left home just a week before
and I’d never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola’s mine and took me by the hand
Said good boy gonna make you a man !”

Well, I’m not the world’s most mascular man,
But I know what I am I’m glad I’m a man and so is Lola
la-la la-la Lola,
La-la la-la Lola
la-la la-la Lola

Lola, la-la la-la Lo-la, la-la la-la Lo-la,
Lola, la-la la-la Lo-la
