Here’s a song I like, about a woman and her spider dance. 🙂

The song is called “Lola Montez” by Volbeat. It was based on a true story, of the woman, and her Spider Dance. I just call it the Spider Dance song, because of the lyrics.

“… did the spider bite your tongue … we will surely not forget the Lola spider dance …”

“Lola Montez”, by Volbeat, is on the album, “Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies”. It is a studio album produced by Robert Caggiano, Volbeat, & Jacob Hansen, on the Vertigo, Republic, Universal label, and was released in 2013. The song is based on the real life of a woman named Lola Montez.

Feel the fire where she walks
Lola Montez, so beautiful
Shady and a tempered dame
Blinding your eyes with her spider dance
Her perfomance 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 look in her eyes
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 look in her eyes
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
Woah
Don’t look in her eyes
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

And just for fun – the Cockroach song

“La Cucaracha (the dancing cockroach)” by DARIA

***

 

From a Wiki article:

“La Cucaracha” is a Spanish folk song that became popular in Mexico between 1910-1920, during the Mexican Revolution. The origins of the song are unknown, but it was created for Victoriano Huerta, a Mexican military officer and 35th President of Mexico, known for the addiction issues he used to have.

    • Thanks, Jim! It does make a song more interesting when it’s about something or someone who really lived, I think. Sure was interesting reading about her. Glad you like the song.
      Oh the dancing cockroaches – such a funny song and video, I agree. 🙂

    • Thanks, Christine! Glad you like the song. I like a lot of their songs, and this was the first I’d heard of them, actually a few years ago. haha That cartoon video is so fun to watch, isn’t it! Oh yes, I remember Charo – she was always fun to see. 🙂
