The Lyrics

Saw this place in magazines
And it looked groovy
So I hoped on a plane
Here in Canada I'll say "Eh"
Hit up Niagara Falls
Boast of my testicles
I’ve the gall to ride it in a barrel
Grab my snapshot
And flip off the camera
T-shirt wearing with my black socks
And my lame sandals
I’ll hit the casinos and waste all my green
Chug a whole lot of ounces
Then whine cause I got beat
I’m on vacation
Left my brain home in Maine
I’ll crash here in the lobby
Cause my room key is lost
I’m not peeved although someone robbed me
You’d think that I’d be frustrated
But my office makes me heave
Might get sprayed with mace
By those chicks at the bar
Since I went and called them all tramps
And said that they should ride me hard

So stupid…

I’m… On Vacation!
I’m a tourist, Baby!
That’s why they all hate me!!!

“See my barrel snapshot!!!”

I’m… On Vacation
I’m a tourist, Baby!
That’s why they all hate me!!!

Next year I traveled to the Magic Kingdom
Fan of amusement parks and a Mickey Mouse lover
I knocked over people
While I’m running through the line
Fake “No ingles” if I hear those bastards whine
I won’t act composed
I’m an insane whack-job
I’ll read the park map but its EPCOT’s I swapped
If you try to help I’ll yell in your face
“I know where I’m at!!!
But where the Hell is Mission Space?!?!”
When in line make out with my date
I don’t care if kids see
As I grope her while I wait
On the ride she is gonna flash
Then I will get uptight
When you delete our picture!!!

We’re… On vacation!
We are tourists, Baby!
That’s why we’re such dummies!!!

“These prices are expensive!!!”

We’re… On vacation!!!!
We are tourists, Baby!
That’s why we’re complaining!!!

“Gulped down fifteen beers!!!”
“No, I won’t calm down!!!”

[Drunken mumbling in the background]

“When at dinner yell at waiters
Where’s my freakin’ drink?!?!?!!?!
Go and get it!!!!!!!”

On Vacation!
I’m a tourist, Baby
Locals want to kill me!!!

On Vacation!!!
I’m a tourist, Baby
In your shot I’m leaping

On Vacation!!!
I’m a tourist, Baby
Speak English, In Paree’

“I don’t know French, Frenchies!”

On Vacation!!!
I’m a tourist, Baby
I’ll scream like a banshee!!!

Enjoyed the storyline in this one Matty. How was it being a tourist instead of a Boat Guide who's cocoNUTS? Liked 'Left my brain home in Maine' and the whole magic kindgom and EPCOT stanza

Thanks Glen! As you can probably tell I've delt with this guy while working at Disney World. I thankfully wasn't as bad as he is when I'm on vacation.

(ABC) Sound like what we think (In Jersey) of the vacationers coming down to the shore. We call them BENNIES!

(ABC) This read like an extended Not Always Right entry from the other perspective. That's a good thing, BTW. Hilarious parody, 555!

My favorite line is "Please don't be crass or snide, I am the universe"

Oops, I pasted th^t in the wrong place. My favorite line is still "See my barrel snapshot!"
Abbott Skelding - January 26, 2014 - Report this comment
