The Lyrics

Since I mocked all the Beatle' songs several years ago, I thought I'd add them to the HUGE number that's already here. Maybe there's a few that haven't been done yet
I got something to show you that could cause distress
You got a nasty letter from the I.R.S.
They're calling you downtown
To walk the mat
They're auditing from '94
Oh, you can't pay that

It's the second time you've gotten notice in the mail
If you toss it one more time you're gonna end up in jail
They're calling you downtown
To walk the mat
They may investigate more
Oh, you can't pay that

All they want is green
With interest charges and a fine
It's quite obscene
You say you can't pay
They'll laugh in your face

So please listen to them, I don't wish you no harm
There's a guy in prison with your name on his arm
They're calling you downtown
To walk the mat
You'll end up wiser and poor
Oh, you can't pay that

I can relate to this one... in a similar vein to "Big Bills":

I'm glad I look through peoples' older parodies every now and then; this one's great.

I do that too, Johnnie, there are some real gems. That's one reason I stay away from "topical" stuff. It doesn't wear well down the road.
