"They Came To Boston" as written by Nate Albert and Dicky Barrett....
They came to Boston on their vacation
They came, they saw, they annoyed me
They saw it all, what! Fanueil Hall! It's best if they just avoid me
Rented a car to see the sights they found the Hub confusing

Looked for the Swan Boats In Mattapan well, I find that real amusing
I was here before they came. I'll be here long after
Don't want to share, but it seems clear that I'm gonna have to
They came to Boston for an education live in the dorms, join a frat

Jam my bars and subway cars now, what the fuck is that?
Spend year one having fun and causing aggravation
Spending daddy's cash on a toga bash when the hell's graduation?
I was here before they came I'll be here long after

Don't want to swear, but it seems clear that I'm gonna have to, aw fuck
I was here before they came I'll be here long after
Don't want to share, but it seems clear that I'm gonna have to
I was here before they came I'll be here long after

Don't want to share, but it seems clear that I'm gonna have to

They came to Boston
They came to Boston
They came to Boston

They came to Boston
They came to Boston
They came to Boston

They came to Boston
They came to Boston
They came to Boston

    General CommentNot just that though johnc... just how there are the people that actually live in Boston, and then the outsiders (college kids, tourists, whatever)... the natives don't like the outsiders, since the outsiders come in, don't get a real understanding of the city, then just move on with their lives, but the natives just have to deal with it... doesn't mean they're not pissed though.

    I think if there was a lost verse it'd mention something about the Boston commuters tying up I-93 and I-95.

    General Commentmy god what stupid lyrics!
    their fuckin elitism!
    like, someone's gonna dirty up their precious city?
    like their fathers bought them that city and noone else can come and play?
    jesus...

    if they wanna see no tourists and people moving in they should go live somewhere in the mountains among trees and animals and no one will fuckin bother them

    i love bosstones, don't get me wrong, but this is just plain stupid
