4 Things


Some time ago Jessica from ChronicallyVintage posted a fun tag post with 4 answers to different questions about herself. I rarely post stuff about myself on this blog but it’s my birthday this week so I thought it’d be fun to do  something more personal in between the more substantive posts 🙂 I’m not going to post yet another wishlist, because how many of these can a gal have, right? (although *hint hint*, you know, you can still check out my previous ones)

If you feel like doing it, I encourage you to do so, it’s fun!

Naughty Lola

They call me naughty Lola
The wisest girl on earth
At home my pianola
It works for all it’s worth
Now I tell you a secret
Don’t hammer on the keys
For a little pianissimo

Is always bound to please

They call me naughty Lola
The wisest girl on earth
At home my pianola
It works for all it’s worth
The boys all love my music

I can’t keep them away
So my little pianola

Keeps working night and day

“Die Fesche Lola” – music: Friedrich Holländer, lyrics: Robert Liebmann. 

I am Lola. I do not have a pianola but a piano could be found. This is my place online in which I will share what I do and what turns me on. I’ll see you!
