featuring the Cypress Studio Singers
The orca (killer whale) named Lolita was taken from British Columbian waters and ended up at an amusement park in Florida. This anthem is a timely reminder of our relationship to nature; an easy sing with solid harmonies and a poignant message.

LYRICS

45 years is a long haul – trapped inside these prison walls
Doesn’t time slip by at a crawl, Lolita?
Can someone tell me, what was your crime?
to lock you away from all of your kind?
Lost and afraid for such a long time, Lolita?

Bring Lolita home, bring Lolita home
If you knew all she’s been through you’d leave the girl alone.
Sing Lolita home, sing Lolita home
She’s been gone away too long – bring Lolita home.

They stole you away from paradise – sold you for a ticket price
People can be as cold as ice, Lolita
Out there your family waits for you
far and away from this pent up zoo
where people point and they laugh at you, Lolita

chorus

Help is coming, though the hour is late
to save you from your twisted fate
Storm the walls, tear down the gate!

Bring Lolita home, bring Lolita home
If you knew all she’s been through you’d leave the girl alone.
45 years is a long haul – trapped inside these prison walls
Doesn’t time slip by at a crawl, Lolita?
