"La Dolly Vita" is a song from The Smashing Pumpkins' 1994 compilation album, Pisces Iscariot. It was recorded during or just prior to the Gish sessions and originally released with the "Tristessa" single. The song title is a reference to the 1960 film La Dolce Vita, as some sort of inside joke.[1]

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

i lay my head on her bosom
to cry myself to sleep
i seek no greater wisdom
than she has given me

la dolly vita
sweet as true love
la dolly vita
cool as ice cream
cool as ice cream

even with all her visions
you can't even stop
can't see what you're missing
spinning like a top

fade away i want to see her
fade away i want to see her
i only want to meet her

la dolly vita
true as blue sky
la dolly vita
cool as ice cream
cool as ice cream

take it all the way down
forsake what you have known
take it all the way down
