Lola Montez Lyrics
Lola Montez so beautiful
Shady and a tempered dame
Blinding your eyes with her spider dance
Her performance utterly erotic subversive to all ideas
And for public morality
And cool as she was she didn't...

It's about a woman they most likely met while touring.

Lola Montez performed the infamous Spider Dance, where she lifted her skirts to shake the spider out. The gold miners through gold nuggets at her estatically!
Volbeat is giving a nod to a famous Irish dancer named the Marie Dolores Eliza Rosanna Gilbert from the mid 1800's. She was called the Spanish dancer and went by the stage name Lola Montez. Her spider dances was very controversial (how ever it would seem the gold miners loved the spider dance)as she would tend to show a little too much skin at times.
Is should also be said that she was the Countess of Landsfeld thanks to her relationship with King Ludwig 1 of Bavaria.
I love this song.
