Lyrics
On the city streets I got the tunes in my pocket
I'll play the Chili Peppers so the public can rock
Excuse me mister, won't you hear my thoughts?
I play in a band, yeah, we're called the Red Hots
Out of my way, boy, I'm afraid not
I've got no time to think and talk
But this baby rocked out on the spot
She was a shakin' and a kickin' that itty bitty tot
Her pop said no but she just couldn't stop
The kid had a case of toddler rock

Well, here's a funky fact that I know is real
The Red Hots have baby appeal
They dig a funky speil, yeah, it makes them squeal
The Chili Peppers have baby appeal
The funk mobile is the one we wheel
I'm overjoyed we have baby appeal
We serve those tots in the funk-o-meal
I'm overjoyed we have baby appeal

We stoke the fire, we crank the heat
Four groove dog brothers funkin' out in the street
Rockin' up a storm when who do we meet
But the hop, skip, jump, bumpin' baby the beat
She was a shakin' and a kickin' those itty bitty feet
The next thing you know she called out her fleet
Five thousand babies rockin' out in the street
That's a serious sight I mean, golly, gee whiz
I just can't tell you how much we dig
Rock it right out for those itty, bitty kids, rock out

Well, here's a funky fact that I know is real
The Red Hots have baby appeal
They dig a funky speil, yeah, it makes them squeal
The Chili Peppers have baby appeal
The funk mobile is the one we wheel
I'm overjoyed we have baby appeal
We serve those tots in the funk-o-meal
I'm overjoyed we have baby appeal

Got the tunes in my box

Baby appeal
Rock out
Play the Chili
Yes, we're called the Red Hots

On the city streets I got the tunes in my pocket
I'll play the Chili Peppers so the public can rock
Excuse me mister, won't you hear my thoughts?
I play in a band, yeah, we're called the Red Hots
Out of my way, boy, I'm afraid not
I've got no time to think and talk
But this baby rocked out on the spot
She was a shakin' and a kickin' that itty bitty tot
Her pop said no but she just couldn't stop
The kid had a case of toddler rock

Well, here's a funky fact that I know is real
The Red Hots have baby appeal
They dig a funky speil, yeah, it makes them squeal
The Chili Peppers have baby appeal
The funk mobile is the one we wheel
I'm overjoyed we have baby appeal
We serve those tots in the funk-o-meal
I'm overjoyed we have baby appeal
