When you see a girl walking down the street,
You can bet she's fine, you can bet she's sweet,
Down in East L.A.,
Down in East L.A.

Not too far from the city lights,
Latin music fills the night,
Down in East L.A.,
Down in East L.A.

Cholos? hang in the neighborhood,
Standing on the corner feeling good,
Down in East L.A.,
Down in East L.A.

Woooah, Down in East L.A.,
Woooah, Down in East L.A.

It's a part of the city,
But it's more than a place,
It's a smile on a face,
It's a dream come true,
And it's me and you,
And we feel it down deep in the soul,
And it gives from the young
And it gives to the old,
It's the promised land,
Where a man can be a man,
And his home,
Yes his home,

So be my friend,
And drink some wine,
Together we can party all the time,
Down in East L.A.,
Down in East L.A.

Woooah, down in East L.A.,
Woooah, down in East L.A.,
Woooah, down in East L.A,

Down in East L.A.
I got friends in East L.A.
Yes I do,
I want to thank them for being my friends,
And I want to thank you all for all being my friends,
Down in East L.A.,
Down in East L.A.,
Don't you know,
Don't you know {fade out}
