Taxes

 

Now we’re going to have to face up to some of MY hard facts,

and you are going to agree with me ‘cause I’m gonna charge you tax;

 

if you want to buy the things that I say are not okay

you’ll find that there’s an extra cost that you are gonna pay.

 

You want your fancy imports at the cost of our employment,

maybe increased prices will make you consider your enjoyment;

 

perhaps there is a better way for you to get your kicks

or else you’ll have to play along with all my fiscal tricks.

 

And then there should be some kind of internal adjustment

so people keep more of their own wealth, a reimbursement

 

for their position that’s superior, their talent that’s supreme;

let others live on water while we can pig out on cream.

 

We’ll benefit the worthy, the ones that ‘have’ will be rewarded,

the others can just struggle if they haven’t been deported.

 

We’ll make this place so great once more, at least if you are rich;

the rest of the population will learn that life can be a bitch!
