Monologue

Similar to the style of the monologue used in the introduction of the "Ride" music video, a monolgue speech was recorded to the introduction of the "Cola" instrumental and was later used in a promotional video used to accompany the April, 2013 edition of L'Officiel Paris, a French fashion magazine which features Lana as "Rosalita", Mexico's movie star queen.

In addition to being used in the video for L'Officiel, it was also believed that the monologue would be featured in a music video for "Cola", but as no official video has been announced or released, this is unlikely to occur.

With music strong I come,
With my cornets and my drums.
I play not marches for accepted victors only,
I play great marches for conquered and slain persons.
Have you heard that it was good the gain the day?
I also say it is good to fall,
Battles are lost in the same spirit in which they are won.
I beat and pound for the dead,
I blow through my embouchures my loudest and gayest for them.

Lyrics

My pussy taste like Pepsi-Cola,
My eyes are wide like cherry pies.
I gots a taste for men who're older
It's always been, so it's no surprise.
 
Harvey's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me crazy
(I come alive, alive)
All he wants to do is party with his pretty baby.
 
Come on, baby, let's ride
We can escape to the great sunshine.
I know your wife, and she wouldn't mind
We made it out to the other side [3x]
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, baby.
 
I fall asleep in an American flag
I wear my diamonds on skid row
I pledge allegiance to my dad
For teaching me everything he knows
 
Harvey's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me crazy (I come alive, alive))
All he wants to do is party with his pretty baby
 
Come on, baby, let's ride,
We can escape to the great sunshine.
I know your wife, and she wouldn't mind
We made it out to the other side [3x]
 
Drugs suck it up
Like vanilla icies
Don’t treat me rough,
Treat me really niceys
Decorate my neck
Diamantes ices
Why, come on, come on
Ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, yeah
 
Come on baby, let’s ride
We can escape to the great sunshine
I know your wife, and she wouldn’t mind
We made it out to the other side
 
Come on baby, let’s ride
We can escape to the great sunshine
We made it out to the other side
We made it out to the other side
 
Come on, come on
Come on, baby
Come on, come on
Come on, baby
 
Whoa ah
My pussy tastes like Pepsi-Cola
Oh... ah
My pussy tastes like Pepsi-Cola
Oh....
My pussy tastes like Pepsi-Cola
Oh... whoa...yeah
