Los Angeles, A Song by X

X - Los Angeles



She had to leave
Los Angeles
All her toys go 'round in black and her boys had too
She started to hate every nigger and Jew
Every Mexican that gave her lotta shit
Every homosexual and the idle rich
Idle rich
She had to get out
Get out

She gets confused
Flying over the dateline
Her hands turn red
Cause the days change at night
Change in an instant
The days change at night
Change in an instant

She had to leave
Los Angeles
She found it hard to say goodbye to her own best friend
She bought a clock on Hollywood Boulevard the day she left
It felt sad

She had to get out
Get out

X is a Los Angeles-based band led by musician/poets John Doe and Exene Cervenka. Active since the late 1970s, they can still be seen performing around town.
