Out in L.A. is a song by Red Hot Chili Peppers.

There are at least two versions of it:

It was the first song the band ever wrote, with the original band members Hillel Slovak and Jack Irons.

A demo version was recorded in 1983 and released in the Out in L.A. compilation album and once again in the 2003 remastered edition of the debut album.

The version that appears on the demo was recorded with Hillel Slovak on guitar and Jack Irons on drums.

The version that appears on the album was recorded with Jack Sherman on guitar and Cliff Martinez on drums due to Slovak and Irons leaving the band before recording the album.

Lyrics of demo versionEdit

Lyrics of album versionEdit

We're all a bunch of brothers livin' in a cool way
Along with six million others in this place called L.A.

L.A. is the place, sets my mind ablaze
For me, it's a race through a cotton pickin' maze

The town makes me jump, it's got a bunch of bad chicks
Well sure, it's got some chumps but I still get my kicks
My body loves to scrump when I lick the ripe pick
Like a come on a thumb
Poppin' hump, hump, hump, pop out

The action never stops, I'm as wild as can be
'Cos I'm shooting for the top and my best friend is Flea
Oom Chucka Willy knew the balls to pop
But he never met the Tree so he never be-bopped out hop!

Antwan the Swan, from the pretty fish pond
Was a bad mother jumper, you could tell he was strong
He war a cold paisley jacket and a hellified hat
And between his legs was a sweat young lass

He threw a hundred women up against the wall
And he swore to fear that he'd love 'em all
By the time he got to ninety nine, he had to stop
Because that's when he thought that he heard a phone

Last night and the night before, I heard a
Fop outside, then I came in doors
Freak out!

Now that I told you a little something about the Flea
A little something about the Tree, a little something about me
I can't leave you hangin' but my man Shermzy, he swings the yang, he bangs the yang
And now, it's time to hear him do his playin', you better be burning Sherman!

We're all a bunch of brothers livin' in a cool way
Along with six million others in this place called L.A.

Step out!
