Well I’m not dumb but I can’t understand
Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man

I met her in a club down in old soho where you drink champagne and it taste just like cherry cola…

The line “You drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry cola” was recorded as “it tastes just like Coca-Cola.” The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) refused to play it because of the commercial reference, so Ray Davies flew from New York to London to change the lyric and get the song on the air. The song your currently listening to is the original. I actually prefer the “Cherry Cola” version.

At school, I was suffocated by the amount of normality I was subjected to. I knew how to count, yet they, the teachers, pushed all these complex forms of mathematics down my throat. I could read, but I wasn’t allowed to read what I wanted. I was force-fed the syllabus because it was deemed the standard. The norm. I was not particularly bright in that I could only absorb information that interested me. Anything else either put me to sleep or made me physically ill.
