Up the Rhine by T. Hood

Why, Tourist, why
With Passport have to do?
Pr'ythee stay at home and pass
The Port and Sherry too.
Why, Tourist, why
Embark for Rotterdam?
Pr'ythee stay at home and take
 Thy Hollands in a dram.
Why, Tourist, why
To foreign climes repair?
Pr'ythee take thy German Flute,
And breathe a German air.
Why, Tourist, why
The Seven Mountains view?
Any one at home can tint
A hill with Prussian Blue.
Why, Tourist, why
To old Colonia's walls?
Sure, to see a Wrenish Dome,
One needn't leave St. Paul's.
