The Lyrics

In my last junior high school year, I heard the original song many times. To keep this happy memory alive, I parodied it to depict my first complete trip (with my Spanish class) to Ybor City (in Tampa, Florida) in my first high school year to recall some of the sights there. I also want to mention the Ybor City State Museum (which was not mentioned in this parody) and all (or most) of it was in the National Register of Historic Places. That made me (and some preservation companies, including the National Trust For Historic Preservation) contented.
(instrumental intro)

I went to Ybor City
I went to Ybor City
It's in Tampa, it's in Tampa
It's in Tampa, it's in Tampa
It's in Tampa, it's in Tampa
Inside Tampa

A place called Ybor City
It's Tampa's inner city
In Florida, In Florida
West Florida, West Florida
It's historic, it's historic
Ybor City
Ybor City

(short instrumental break)

I had lunch in the Colombia in Ybor
Tasty food-ah, Tasty food-ah
I toured the breads in La Segunda in Ybor
Son Cubanas Son Cubanas
And I watched men make handmade cigars in Ybor
What a thrill, yah!
What a thrill, yah!
Pride of Tampa!

(instrumental break)

And I like (and I like) Ybor City
(Me gusta Ybor)
Without trou-
(and without trou-)
-bles or pities
Best In Tampa, best in Tampa
Best In Tampa, best in Tampa
Give it to ya,
Part of Tampa
ˇViva Ybor!
ˇViva Ybor!
Part of Tampa
ˇSí, me gusta!
