"Lola Montez" as written by and Michael Poulsen....
Feel the fire where she walks
Lola Montez so beautiful
Shady and a tempered dame
Blinding your eyes with her spider dance

Her performance utterly erotic subversive to all ideas
And for public morality
And cool as she was, she didn't care
See the miner throw his gold
Lifting her skirt howling loud like a wolf
Hell raising and full of sin
When Lola was dancing and showing her skin

Wherever she walks
She will be captivating all the men
Don't you laugh
You might fall and find the love of your life, heavenly
But she'll catch you in her web
The love of your life, yeah

Feel the fire where she walks
Lola Montez so beautiful
Shady and a tempered dame
Blinding your eyes with her spider dance

Well notorious I have been
But never for fame that's what she said
Dear Henry taste my whip
Never to see any words you print

Wherever she walks
She will be captivating all the men
Don't you laugh
You might fall and find the love of your life, heavenly
But she'll catch you in her web
The love of your life, yeah

Oh Lola I'm sure that the love would have been
The key to all your pain, the key to all your pain
No words will later come
Did the spider bite your tongue
We will surely not forget
We will surely not forget
The Lola spider dance

Whoa
Don't you laugh
You might fall and find the love of your life, heavenly
But she'll catch you in her web
The love of your life, yeah

    My OpinionLola Montez was the stage name of an Irish dancer commonly thought of as a spanish dancer back in the day. She became most famous for an erotic spider dance she performed in front of 400 in Austrailia in 1856...but before that she was pretty much hated by an entire country.

    Born Eliza Rosanna Gilbert on February 17, 1821 in Ireland and died at age 39 on January 17, 1861 in New York...She became well known in several countries. in In 1846, she became the mistress to King Ludwig I of Bavaria and he gave her the title Countess of Landsfield. She used her influence to institute liberal reforms. She was hated by the people. In 1848 she was forced to flee and King Ludwig abdicated.

    She eventually ended up in the United Stated and on June 30, 1860 suffered a stroke that left her partially paralized for some time. By mid-december she had recovered enough to walk a straight line with a limp. She contracted pneumonia and lingered for a bit before dying one month before her fortieth birthday in New York on January 17, 1861. She is buried in Green-Wood Cemetary in Brooklyn, New York...her tombstone incorrectly says she was 42 at the time of her death.

    She was portrayed in the 1922 German film, The Kings Dancer...her part was played by Ellen Richter. {as well as other films and writings}
