Won’t you spare me over another year?
But what is this that I can’t see?
With ice cold hands taking hold of me
When God is gone and the Devil takes hold
Who will have mercy on your soul?
No wealth, no ruin, no silver, no gold,
Nothing satisfies me but your soul
Well I am Death
None can excel
I’ll open the door to heaven or hell
My name is Death and the end is here.
“Lola” by The Kinks, introduced by Bob Dylan
From an episode of Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour dedicated to women’s names, here’s a fun song to remind you that not everyone with a girl’s name is really a girl.
“Now I’m not the world’s most masculine man / But I know what I am, I’m a man / And so is Looooooo-la / La-LA-la-la-loooooooo-la…”
