This song is about an upcoming Summer Olympics in Athens starting in August 13.What if Ruben Studdard would sing this parody in the opening ceremony? Does the world know him?
(In Athens)
(In Athens)

It's like in '88,
It's like in '92.
(I'm in Athens)
It's like 2000,
and I love events.
(I'm in Athens)
It's like watching all events,
in Sydney and Athens,
(I'm in Athens)
I'm watching the olympics,
and I ain't got five rings.
(Oooh I'm in Athens)

But I've been travelling
a million times before.
(I'll travel a million more)
So here it comes again
for the Olympiad
(so get ready babe)
Here's ten-thousand bucks.

[Chorus]
Hey I'm going to Athens in 2004.
Which is the 28th olympiad, in Greece.
I'm 'a buy a ticket,
and board on a plane.
I've travelled to Seoul
and I've travelled to Moscow (for real)
and I've travelled to L.A. (i am)
in case I dont tell you.
Sydney, and Munich, Korea, Atlanta and Barcelona.
Then Athens.
(In Athens 2004)

Its like watchin' all the night,
had way too late to bed.
(I'm in Athens)
It's like you live so far,
and I dont miss an event.
(I'm in Athens)
I have been watching track and field,
gymnastics, and swimming.
(I'm in Athens)
And the olympic games will start,
on 08 13 04.
(I'm in Athens!)

But I've been travelling
a million times before.
(I'll travel a million more)
So here it comes again
for the Olympiad
(so get ready babe)
Here's ten-thousand bucks.

[Chorus]
Hey I'm going to Athens in 2004.
Which is the 28th olympiad, in Greece.
I'm 'a buy a ticket,
(I'm 'a take my ride)
and board on a plane.
I've travelled to Seoul
and I've travelled to Moscow (for real)
and I've travelled to L.A. (i am)
in case I dont tell you.
Sydney, and Munich, Korea, Atlanta and Barcelona.
Then Athens.
(In Athens 2004)

[Hook]
I'm watching all the athletes around the world
I'm watching all the sports and hope U.S. will win
I'm watching the opening, watching all the athletes,
and the parade of nations, watching all the events
watching for U.S.
winning for the gold
I was hoping that they will reach high,
I was hoping that they will reach strong.
What can I do to help them to win gold medals.
(Athens, Athens)

Oooooooooooooohhhhhhh! [echo]
Wooooooooh!
All the athletes
around the world.
I'm for America!,
'cause I don't want to let them lose.

[Chorus]
Hey I'm going to Athens in 2004.
Which is the 28th olympiad, in Greece.
I'm 'a buy a ticket,
and board on a plane.
I've travelled to Seoul
and I've travelled to Moscow (for real)
and I've travelled to L.A. (i am)
in case I dont tell you.
Sydney, and Munich, Korea, Atlanta and Barcelona.
Then Athens.
(In Athens 2004)

[Starts Fading]
Hey I'm going to Athens in 2004.
Athens 2004
Hey I'm going to Athens in 2004.
Athens 2004
