La

from T.S. Eliot – The Waste Land on Rap Genius

Meaning

Mirrors “Weialala leia / Wallala leialala.” (This is the third of the songs of the three Thames-daughters.)

Other resonances:

LA (lamb allif) is an Arabic word of negation: “no” or “not” something. This could therefore be a double negation: la la, “nothing with nothing”…

Also, “so la la” meaning “so-so,” “middle of the road” in German.

Finally, could suggest a hollow tonal “filler,” or a dismissive “la-di-da.”
