The Lyrics

We have all been there -- broke and begging!
You saw me begging with the Taxman
The tears I shed were tears of pain.
I know the meaning of "defeated"
Now he will beat be up again.

But a mean and hard-nosed taxman
Never list'ns to what I say
I pray to him that he'll be patient
As I have no means to pay.

I've begged and I've begged
But he wouldn't wait
For me to pay.
Now I'm in a state!

Now I'm begging with the taxman
Let me go and set me free
I look at all my empty pockets
Where the money used to be!

Every taxman looks for something
Just the tiniest amount
But I haven't got a penny
I can give him on account.

Took my statements to the taxman
'Cos that man was on my case!
He said it wasn't his fault
Then he laughed right in my face

I've begged and I've begged
But he wouldn't wait
For me to pay.
Now I'm in a state

Take your money to the taxman
He knows how to bleed you dry
For you can't escape his clutches
It matters not how hard you try.
(c)Peter Wyllie 2004Proverse.

Great job. Some one should cut it as a novelty for tax season.
