Kooks, our song for Lolita

As we were listening to our favourite David Bowie's album this morning, Hunky Dory, Marco and I realized that the song Kooks was addressed to a child. So I researched and found that the song had been written for his son, Duncan Zowie Haywood Jones, born on 30 May 1971. We voted it our song for Lola, Lolita de nuestro corazon!

For a more robust version of the song, listen to this one.

KOOKS, Hunky Dory - David Bowie (1971)
[CHORUS (x2)]
Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
If you stay you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks
Hung up on romancing

We bought a lot of things
to keep you warm and dry
And a funny old crib on which the paint won't dry
I bought you a pair of shoes
A trumpet you can blow
And a book of rules
On what to say to people
when they pick on you
'Cause if you stay with us you're gonna be pretty Kookie too


And if you ever have to go to school
Remember how they messed up
this old fool
Don't pick fights with the bullies
or the cads
'Cause I'm not much cop at punching other people's Dads
And if the homework brings you down
Then we'll throw it on the fire
And take the car downtown

[CHORUS (repeat ad inf.)]
