Nobody likes paying taxes. So we just pretend it's Uncle Sam's Bar Mitzvah every year. Takes a bit of the sting out of it.


I! R! S! I! R! S! I! R! S! I! R! S!

Steppin’ out da office of my C.P.A.
Didn’t get my refund gots to pay today.

Obamanomic Reaganomic
Voodoo Economic
Can’t tax the income on my homemade hydroponic

I’m deducting like crazy and I don’t regret it.
Writing off my babies with that Earned Income Credit.
Epidemic hypertension, nobody relaxes,
Cause the only thing that’s certain is death and taxes!

I! R! S! I! R! S! I! R! S! I! R! S!

Sold my Benz bought a Chevy sold my house bought a shack.
Selling dimes, steady overtime to make up what I lack.

Got the dollars and cents
To pay your expense
Accounts, not an ounce
But pounds and pence

Cause if you thought they bought it, they caught it by audit.

To tha playas, the haters,
And all the tax evaders:
Don’t wait later
Than the due date or
You’re a chump procrastinator.

Willie Nelson!

I! R! S! I! R! S! I! R! S! I! R! S!
