The Lyrics

This is about a tourist/guest who travels to Beijing to watch the Olympic games.
Two weeks in Beijing makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
Two weeks in Beijing and the gymnasts tumble
Can’t be too aware about piracy
I can feel the dragon walking next to me

Beijing, The Forbidden City
But the city don’t know that the city is polluted
The creme de la creme of the one world
In a show with everything but communists

Time flies, happens once every four years
Since the Athens Olympic games the flame torch goes on
All changed, don’t you know that when you
Compete at this event in every sporting venue

It’s Iceland, or the Philippines, or Hastings
Or, or this place!

Two weeks in Bangkok and the city’s polluted
DVDs are cheaper but they're all pirated
You’ll find a fake in every shopping center
And if you’re lucky, then I'm gonna be there too
I'm gonna be there to watch the Olympic games

One place is very polluted
Wear your mask on while in Beijing, brother

It’s a smog, it’s a fog, it’s really storm and rainy
To be looking at the venue
not looking at the city

Whattaya mean?!
You’ve seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town

CD piracy, cheap
Some are set up in the Tiananmen square

Get tied, you’re talking to a olympian
Whose every move’s competin' for gold
I get my kicks from the swimming pool, sunshine!

Two weeks in Beijing makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
Two weeks in Beijing and the gymnasts tumble
Can’t be too aware about piracy
I can feel the dragon walking next to me

China’s gonna be the hostess
of the Olympic games of athletic business
This grips me more than would a muddy mean city
or flame-spitting dragon

But Thank God I’m only watching the game, controlling them

I don’t see you guys cycling
The kind of sport I’ll go swimming
I’d let you watch, I would invite you
But atheists we use would not excite you.

So, you better go back to your dorms, your hotels
your training centers

One night in Bangkok and the city’s polluted
The worms are roaches but it is so disgusting
You’ll find a fake in every shopping center
Olympic dream, Olympic history
I'm gonna be there to watch the Olympic games

Two weeks in Beijing makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
Two weeks in Beijing and the gymnasts tumble
Can’t be too aware about piracy
I can feel the dragon walking next to me
