Now I’d just like to say a few words about taxes
I pay another man to do my taxes
On account of that’s just one more deduction I can take
But you know the mailman
Brought my W-2 this morning
Yeah and this year
They’re taking a third of all I make.
Now I’m just as patriotic
As the next man
And you know I love that Red White and Blue
So I’m gonna help to pay
This rising cost of freedom
But I’ll be danged if I’m gonna change my point of view.
Cuz every time
The bureaucrats run out of money
Congress socks it to the working man
And I don’t think it’s one bit funny
How they take so much of my money
And do things with it I don’t understand.
I don’t know why they think
They’ve got to squeeze us
But I’ll tell you just exactly where I stand
I believe if ten percent
Is good enough for Jesus
Well it oughta be enough for Uncle Sam.
Now some of these folks
That we’ve been sending off to Congress
Think that all they’ve got to do —
Just spend and spend, huh
But you know
You can’t run a family
Much less a country
With more money going out than coming in.
Yeah and that old debt just keeps on getting bigger
And we all gonna have to pay so don’t you laugh
Cuz pretty soon
We might just look down at our paychecks
And figure out that they done started taking HALF!
