The Lyrics

I combined the regular song with the mix in the later parts for the lyrics. A recording is on the way :)
Rob me, rob me, rob me, rob me, rob me, I'm a tourist!

I left my wallet on the tour bus...

That's me I'm standing
on the left of the escalator
I'm blocking locals, in a hurry
Push me to the floor
I ask them for directions
Fifty times, make corrections
They're getting pissed:
They're gonna rob me, I'm a tourist

Got my cam-er-a
My tacky t-shirt's on
Act like my outfit rocks
In sandals and dark socks
A thousand pictures are planned
Me and a garbage can
Block traffic now
They're gonna rob me I'm a tourist

I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
Oh oh oh I'm a tourist

You're gonna rob me, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
Oh oh oh I'm a tourist

I'm getting boisterous and loud
So many sights to see
Got my New York map upside-down
Walking around DC
I just don't understand how
The locals are so dumb
I tell them everything
Is better, where I come from

I'm acting like a punk
I'm getting way too drunk
You think I'm impolite
I think I'm always right
Without a care I stroll
I walk into a pole
While I'm knocked out
Go on and rob me I'm a tourist!

I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
Oh oh oh I'm a tourist

You're gonna rob me, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
Oh oh oh I'm a tourist

Rob Me I'm A Tourist!

I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
Oh oh oh I'm a tourist

I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist, I'm a tourist
I'm a tourist
Oh oh oh I'm a tourist

Thanks Rex, 2Eagle and Merry. Merry, yes, I was in Euclid Square, and yes, we did pose for a picture with the sign. Four pictures, actually :)

Well, you may have been robbed by mysterious locals and unsavory charlatans, but no one can ever rob 3 sets of 5's from you! This parody is hilarious your story (on the years you went on those trips) are quite unreal! I enjoyed part of this song.

(SOTM) This OS has been parodied mucho times over and over...but you Jeff Reuben are the only person I know who actually has parodied the COMPLETE song (the rap verses and the spoken trivia section). I am delighted...and the performance, incidentally was stellar (should win POTQ if not SOTM!).

Great write Jeff. I live in a tourist destination town and you never see tourists getting mugged on the news. You get the usual gang wars, drug deals gone bad and general homicide. Tourist towns don't like their industry messed with. I live in the 3rd largest city in my state and it has never been featured on COPS, although other smaller towns have as well as the the two larger. They like to protect that tourist trade.

I'd like to see this aired in my city on local radio when it gets recorded. It would never happen. I'll be watching for the recording. Definately 5 material here.

I agree with Agrimorfee on this Jeff, one of your best no doubt about that at all. A great idea, a hard song to tackle, and all in all brilliant.

Over where I live 90 percent of all tourists are Germans, 'nuff said.

oh oh oh, you're a Reuben. (he's a Reuben, he's a Reuben). Well done sir, OS is hard to follow, but you're lyrics are quite solid. The refrain made it for me, though.

(SOTM) This was pretty good, even though I'm not too familiar with the OS. That bit in the middle with the years was a bit wierd. 555, for you, Jeff.

(SOTM) ha, some LOL moments in here Jeff - the upside down map of NY in DC, and all the irritating things tourists say, but I loved the autobiography at the end - gee the locals must have laughed at that Pisa photo-opportunity idea of yours! - 555

My favorite part was "On may 27th Jeff reuben eats fish from the Hudson River/on May 28th Jeff gets hives" and "I walk into a pole/While I'm knocked out/go on and rob me I'm a tourist"...the title is definitely among the best I've ever seen in a parody.

Another one of yours I missed... I must have been fishing out something from my fanny pack when this was posted. Nice work on an underdone song - good recording too!

Wacky and fun. The "biorap" did it for me

Two parodies I'm late to view...and both of them have visits by aoid? Does he only come out when I'm not around? Maybe he's afraid of me. It makes sense.

That being said, this killed me, Jeff...but please tell me you don't REALLY wear dark socks with your sandals. I might cry. Seriously. =) And now I want to know what happened in 2009!

Absolutely brilliant!! This is one of my favorite OS of all time and you just made it better. Don't pay attention to aoid, he obviously sucks at life!!
