Lyrics

INTRO

1ST VERSE
I been at work, a long time
Still I'm broke, can't save a dime
I Work at night, and slave all day
Life is hard always makes you pay
Rich get richer and the poor stay poor
Taxman always wants a little more
I live my life, you know its crazy
They suck me dry before they pay me

CHORUS
You know it makes me wanna cry
You pay your taxes and then you die

2ND VERSE
I try to do, the best I can
Don't always go, with the plan
One thing's for sure, and will always be
The taxman keeps on bleedin' me
The whigs or the tories, don't make no diff
They're both the same it's the same old riff
They put it to me, and it's a sin
I'm a voodoo doll yeah stuck full of pins

CHORUS
You know it makes me wanna cry
You pay your taxes and then you die

SOLO

3RD VERSE
When I'm dead, yeah dead and gone
Be nothin left, but this song
What few things, that I do have
The man will take 'em and tax 'em again
He;ll lay a capital gains tax on my kin
When the bell tolls he'll be wearing a grin
So when it's over, all done and said
They'll still be screwing me when I'm dead

CHORUS
You know it makes me wanna cry
You pay your taxes and then you die

SOLO OUTRO
