                             Sing a song of taxes
                             Workin'-class cancer sore
                             Tea in Boston harbor
                             An' revolutionary war
                             Of givin' to the rich
                             And takin' from the poor
                             Sing a song of taxes
                             Let's even up the score

                             Sing a song of taxes
                             In the presidential pew
                             Throw in greased senators an'
                             Corrupt congressmen in the brew
                             Add a depraved governor
                             The education regency board
                             A few greedy city council members
                             And Attila the Hun's great horde

                             Let's all tax the trucker
                             For drivin' down the road
                             And tax the company janitor
                             For cleanin' the commode
                             Put a levy on the mechanic
                             For changin' auto oil
                             Don't forget the tired farmer
                             For turnin' up the soil

                             Tax the college student
                             For learnin' how to think
                             And tax the hotel maid
                             For scrubbin' out the sink
                             Don't overlook the waitress
                             For servin' up the food
                             And tax the exotic lady
                             For dancin' in the nude

                             Let's tax the faithful mother
                             For bringin' up her son
                             And tax our country's children
                             For chewin' bubble gum
                             Put a tax on entertainment
                             Cigarettes and the liquor store
                             Raise sales tax, shift the burden
                             To the homeless and the poor

                             Sing a song of taxes
                             Fight illegal wars for oil
                             Slash aid for the veterans
                             Pig out on the corporate spoil
                             Privatize social security
                             Fill the purse of the Wall Street whore
                             Reduce firefighters, police and
                             The planet's health just ignore

                             Build some MX-missiles
                             And a B-51 or two
                             Ring the world with laser weapons
                             Paint 'em all red, white and blue
                             Print up some cardboard money
                             Who cares if we all go broke?
                             Who will notice it's our fault
                             When the planet goes up in smoke?

                             Supply-side neo-conmen
                             With a trillion dollar ripoff scam
                             Give the poor half a cup of water
                             And the rich Grand Cooley Dam
                             Borrow from our children's future
                             On the backs of the workin'-class
                             Buy the wealthy a few more yachts
                             While the rest take it in the ass

                             Tax us up every orifice
                             Keep givin' us the screw
                             An', next time the vote comes 'round
                             Find out what the people can do
                             Run your pork fat butts outta office
                             Put your family on the welfare line
                             You'll be in some federal hole
                             Bottoms up, doin' hard rock time

                             Sing a song of taxes
                             At the U.S. National Bank
                             Open up the vaults
                             Clean out the septic tank
                             Cry out from the gutter
                             Beat on your garbage can
                             If there's a God in heaven up above
                             Save us all from the taxman !

                             Sing a song of taxes
                             Workin'-class cancer sore
                             Tea in Boston harbor
                             An' revolutionary war
                             Of givin' to the rich
                             And takin' from the poor
                             WE'RE ALL MAD AS HELL
                             AND WE AIN'T GONNA TAKE NO MORE !
