All her toys wore out 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 She had to 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 blvd the day she left It felt sad she had to get out
