The Lyrics

As pro-Swedish as I generally am, the news story that inspired this little parody made me wonder whether their government has lost its collective mind.
Let's tell the guys how it will be:
you'll owe if you stand up to pee.
Just pay the tax, man--fork out the tax, man!

The folks in Stockholm made the call:
abuse is wrong, we'll blame you all.
So pay the tax, man--fork out the tax, man!

If you watch the girls, we'll tax your eyes
If it turns you on, we'll tax your "size"
'Cause it's in your genes, we'll tax those "Y's"
If you say you're gay, we'll tax those lies

[long instrumental break]

We need your tax, man--fork out the tax, man!

Don't ask us why we're charging more
We don't care if your date's a whore
Just pay the tax, man--fork out the tax, man!

Now, our advice for all the guys:
Declare it when you fantasize.
Just pay the tax, man--fork out the tax, man,
'Cause you're screwing with no one but us.

Donald Duck he had no pants, ee-i, ee-i, oh
In Finland that did cause some rants, ee-i, ee-i, oh
But now it seems the Swedes have too
thrown reputation down the loo
Donald Duck he had no pants, ee-i, ee-i, oh

I loved the "If you watch the girls..." lines :-) Stuart - there's a link just under the parody (though if you have a look at Susanna's parody from 6th (http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/tvseriessouthpark0.shtml), you'll get a bit more info).
