The Zoot Suit Riots were a series of violent clashes during which mobs of U.S. servicemen, off-duty police officers and civilians brawled with young Latinos and other minorities in Los Angeles. The June 1943 riots took their name from the baggy suits worn by many minority youths during that era, but the violence was more about racial tension than fashion.

Who's that whisperin' in the trees?
It's two sailors and they're on leave
Pipes and chains swingin' hands
Who's your daddy?
Yes I am

Fat cat came to play
Now you can't run fast enough
When the pushers come to shove
Zoot suit riot
(Riot)
Throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot
(Riot)

Pull a comb through your coal black hair
Blow daddy!

You got me in a sway
And I want to swing you down
Now you sailors know where your women come for love

(Riot)
Throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot
(Riot)

Pull a comb through your coal black hair

Zoot suit riot
(Riot)
Throw back a bottle of beer
Zoot suit riot
(Riot)

Pull a comb through your coal black hair

You're in a zoot suit riot
You're in a zoot suit riot
You're in a zoot suit riot
