"Pauvre Lola" as written by and Serge Gainsbourg....
Faut savoir s'étendre
Sans se répandre
Pauvre Lola
Faut savoir s'étendre
Sans se répandre
C'est délicat

Ne pas la surprendre
Pas l'entreprendre
Pauvre Lola
Ne pas la surprendre
Pas l'entreprendre
De but en bas

Il est des mots tendres
Qu'elle aime entendre
Tendre Lola
Oui quelques mots tendres
Devraient atten-
Drir Lolita

Ce que ça va rendre
Ça va dépendre
Pauvre Lola
Ce que ça va rendre
Ça va dépendre
Un peu de toi

On peut te prendre
Tu dois t'en rendre
Compte Lola
On peut pas te prendre
Jusqu'aux calendes
Grecques Lola

    General Comment"Poor Lola", a song that was directed by Gainsbourg to his "Lolita de France", France Gall, who the cult icon had an obsession with in her younger years, along with infamous work by Nabokov. In case the connection is not immediately clear, "Lola" is a diminutive form of "Lolita". Lyrically, this song is about a man trying to hint at a young girl about his somewhat carnal interest in her, but to no avail, as she just laughs.
