The Lyrics

Sure we all know Aretha Franklin had a hit with this song but someone sing it before her..plus he wrote it to!! This is basted more on Aretha's version! The idea came from an old Rober Lund song by the same name!

(oo) What I want
(oo) The IRS has it
(oo) What I need
(oo) Goverment stopped it!
(oo) All I'm askin'
(oo) Is for a little re-fund (just a little bit)
Hey baby (just a little bit) from the taxman
(just a little bit) mister (just a little bit)

I ain't gonna do it all wrong for very long
Ain't gonna do it all wrong (oo) 'cause I'm askin' (oo)
All I'm askin' (oo)
Is for a little re-fund (just a little bit)
Baby (just a little bit) from the Taxman (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

I'm all about not getting greedy
And all I'm askin' honey
Is to git back some of my money
When do I get some (just a, just a, just a, just a)
Yeah baby (just a, just a, just a, just a)
When do I get some (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

------ instrumental break ------


R-E-F-U-N-D
I'll tell you what it means to me
R-E-F-U-N-D
Is to get my money back immediately

Oh (give it to me, give it to me,
give it to me, give it to me)
A little re-fund (give it to me, give it to me,
give it to me, give it to me)
Whoa, mister (just a little bit)
A little re-fund(just a little bit)
I got ready (just a little bit)
so give me (just a little bit)
You're runnin' out of foolin' (just a little bit)
And I ain't lyin' (just a little bit)
(re, re, re, re) 'fund
A little re-fund (just a little bit)
coments are welcome as always

The Spanish version of the 1040 makes it clear that only the self-employed are liable for the related taxes. If you sign a 1040, that's a sworn statement that you are self-employed. Read it.

mAximo-I'm sorry but I wont read The Spanish version of the 1040 becuse I don't speak spanish and I would not undersand it!!

Another possible solution to the syllable shortage:
"O", R-e-f-u-n-d!" ... personal appeal to the Pres to cut taxes, or at least not hike them, and it both scans and rhymes. Otherwise. cute concept.

Pay no attention to the habitual gadfly a couple of comments above. A number of his comments, and at least two parodies, have been deleted for inappropriateness. ... Oh, and I *do* speak a little Spanish, just went to the IRS Spanish-language web site, and guess what? ... The 1040 form is still in English (though some other forms, and instruction booklets, are available in Spanish). So he made the whole thing up.
