Lolita Ya Ya
Nelson Riddle Lyrics

Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Ya ya... wo-woo ya ya
Wo-woo ya ya... woo-ya ya ya

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Nelson Riddle's song "Lolita Ya Ya" are simple, repetitive, and infectious. The words "ya ya" and "wo-woo" serve as the main refrains of the tune, and they seem to suggest a sense of mischief and playfulness. The song's title and lyrics also hint at a darker subtext, as "Lolita" is commonly associated with Vladimir Nabokov's novel about the sexual relationship between a middle-aged man and a young girl.

Line by Line Meaning

Ya ya... wo-woo ya ya
I'm feeling excited and mystified by this girl, I can't resist her charms

Wo-woo ya ya... woo-ya ya ya
Her beauty and allure are driving me crazy, I can't control my desire for her

Lolita, ya ya
This girl's name is Lolita and she's got me captivated

Got a little girl, ya ya
She may be young, but she's got a hold on me that I can't shake

Wants to dance, ya ya
Lolita is eager to move her body and she's enticing me to do the same

Hates to dance, ya ya
Despite Lolita's initial reluctance, she can't resist the rhythm and begins to dance

Got to be her man, ya ya
I know I have to be with this girl, she's got a hold on my heart

Loves me like no other can, ya ya
The feeling is mutual, we share a deep and intense love for each other

From early in the morning till late at night
Our love is all-encompassing, it consumes us from morning until night

She's my lollipop, I'm her lollipop
We are each other's sweet indulgence and addiction

Makes my heart go giddyup, ya ya
Lolita's mere presence gets my heart racing with excitement and joy

Never, never go away, ya ya
I never want to lose Lolita and the love that we share

Promise that you'll stay, ya ya
I make a solemn promise to Lolita that I will always be by her side

Lolita, ya ya
She's the center of my world, the one who has captured my heart and soul

Lolita Ya Ya is so plain, so weird, so simple yet is so addictive, I love it!!! I literally just synced it to my phone last night (downloaded it for free) and I haven't stopped playing it since I woke up this morning. I was up since 6:30 and now it's 8:30 and I've played it on repeat non-stop!!


you're sick , like me ...

I love this melody. So early '60's. I thought it worked well in the movie. It musically expressed James Masons characters inner thoughts at the time. Free to pursue his teeny-bopper desires!
