The Lyrics

DKTOS - Click HERE for a Youtube ABBA video of "SOS."

I got some healthy pays, my taxes fell behind,
They dried my revenue, and that was most unkind.
They zapped a hold above,
On both my homes and goods.
My assets are on ice, I'm lucky I've got food.

Oh my, oh dear me, hardly will they hear me,
IRS.
The shove they gave me, will nobody save me,
IRS.
Dough's all gone,
And my bank says that I'm overdrawn.
Assets gone,
My oh my, how can I carry on?

They towed my cars away, they really kicked my rear,
They left me so deprived, they want my hide, I fear.
I never tried to fake them out,
They fish for funds accrued,
What happenened to my luck, they used the law and sued.

Badly did they smear me, hurt me so severly.
IRS.
Lawyers need to save me, but they charge so gravely,
IRS.
All is gone,
Can't afford, just to pay, at-ten-shon.
Overdrawn,
Accounts have dried and they're fried, it's all gone.

Explained it clearly, but they just won't hear me,
IRS.
They just treat me gravely, they want to enslave me,
IRS.
Like a pawn,
You apply, they deny, all is gone.
Pressin' on,
Wonder why, these hard guys carry on.
On and on,
As they spy, all you buy, then it's gone.
It's a con,
How they spy and they pry on and on.

Alright - you owe $555.00 in back taxes and that is without the compounded interest. Send us the deed to your home(s) and keys to all your vehicles along with titles. Then we'll talk. Oh yeah - you have any dreams? We'll take those too. Have a nice day. :)

Now that is a subject to be mangled - good job - SOS - IRS. I like the original song and those girls in their cat dresses.

The IRS form in Sweden is simple: How much did you earn last year? How much do you have left? When can we come get it?

Only three things you can be sure of...death...taxes...and 5s.

Sir Guy, I try not to think about the ~i~ word, and its unKnightly crew of prying mobsters, because that is indeed what they are !

Very good IRS spoof with an original song with a high degree of difficulty.

Hey Guy! I thought this looked a bit familiar (the title only that is). Check this out:

And no, I am not at all concerned. The more the merrier :) I enjoyed your take on the same idea :) Good job!

Agent Bleedja - The hell you say? Come and get it.

Alvin - No one likes these guys so they are fair game to bash without getting into trouble over it. Thanks.

2 Eagle - Cat Dresses? Meow! When did I miss that? Thanks.

Peter - Sounds like the Swedish revenue system is much simpler than the beast we deal with but then again I'd like to keep something after taxes. Thanks.

M'Lady - yes indeed - they can make The Mob look like church ladies.
BR> JJ - I've been on about Abba, Carol King and Steely Dan of late. Should be more to come on Abba and for sure on Carol King. I have a good CK one lined up for next week. Thanks.

Pip - All I can say is great minds think alike. I did a search on SOS and found nothing about IRS - If i'd have done a search on S.O.S. I would have seen yours out there and would have moved on to something else. Thanks for being so gracious about this.
