when first they hop on, they think its a ball
in only a short time, they dread that they'll fall
cause the trail ain't that big, its real narrow and small

when tourists mount burros, its something to see
when tourists mount burros, its something to see

it hurts in their bones, catchin' lifts on a mule
first the plan seemed so clever, now they feel like fools
mules start buckin' crazy and don't follow the rules

when tourists mount burros, its something to see
when tourists mount burros, its something to see

well, mules torture and scare them until they shed tears
and then they eject them right unto their rears
then folks lose all their gumption and just disappear

when tourists mount burros, its something to see
when tourists mount burros, its something to see

though they strive for precision, wrecks, you still see
its a risky endeavor, if asses, they be
and i mean the two leg kind, not the four legged breed

when tourists mount burros, its something to see
when tourists mount burros, its something to see

they start at the top, all zealous and thrilled
but things soon get weird and they sense they'll be killed
they lose all their glee as they stroll down the hill

when tourists mount burros, its something to see
yes, when tourists mount burros, its something to see

if you want to lease a burro, just follow me
if you want to lease a burro, just follow me
