The Lyrics

Response to tax cuts that will expire at the end of 2012.Heard the word expire on TV and the song Girl On Fire with the part "head in the clouds". The president and congress have had their heads in the sand,dragging these taxes out the whole year and not getting things done.Any body who can come up with a good rhyme line for Hottest of the hottest girls say. Please leave a comment. For the held strung out "oh's" just follow the original song. Feel free to give input.
Oh what a mess if they expire
I have a lot you see,I hope that I don't pay
Why in this world should I pay higher?
If it's only for me,you know it's not fair play

Oh they got their heads in the sand
and they haven't a plan.

Oh it's just the same run around
and their thinking ain't sound.

Don't let them expire
Don't let them expire
We're paying much higher
Don't let them expire

Looks like the deal is down the drain
tonight no compromise
better luck some other day
It's buyer beware and that's a shame
they promise us the world
but spend more and more each day

oh (they )got their heads in the sand
and they haven't a plan.

oh (it's) just the same run around
and their thinking ain't sound

Don't let them expire
Don't let them expire
We're paying much higher
Don't let them expire

Everybody stares and wonders why
they only place blame,no compromise
fighting for votes way in the night
Nobody knows I want to own this world
with some gold and pearls
They gotta let me earn baby earn baby

Don't let them expire
Don't let them expire
We're paying much higher
Don't let them expire

No don't take a my doe no (Repeats at least three times.)

Oh what a mess if they expire
