She is a silly cat, silly girl, silly teen
can’t tell the difference between good and evil
her teeth are white, her jeans are clean
she'll buy anything they'll sell her

All the horny teens, scary stuff
and she’s trying to reach the unreachable
When she says, could I show you how Americans make love?
It's easy to think America is lovable

Los Angeles is burning down
but Hollywood sleeps just fine

Alcohol is a depressant, blurring
but has the desired effect on her moves
She says I know a place and starts walking
Man, she doesn't even wait for an answer

What’s that siren in the background?
She says hey babe, it's downtown L.A.
You should never risk waking up the hounds
especially if you would like to go down there

Los Angeles is burning down
but Hollywood sleeps just fine

And there is probably someone still waiting up for her
but she doesn't seems to care
she sings along with the radio
and what do you know, it’s Sloopy
Knows that she is turning them on
while she's so far away… so far away from home

Los Angeles is burning down
Sloopy lives in a very bad part of this town
Los Angeles is burning down
and everybody there tries to put her down
everybody there tries to put her down
