The Lyrics

Where are those deductions?
They seem so hard to find
I wanted a rebate
Said I was going blind
Whatever happened to my pay?
I wish I understood
It used to be so nice - I used it to buy food

So when you see me starving don't feel guilty IRS
I'm broke and hungry - hope my friends can save me IRS
On my own
My hopes out the window I have thrown
Whine and moan
Maybe you could toss me an old bone?

You seem so pedantic
Though you maintain you're fair
You're full of bureaucrats
None of them really care
I thought of staging my own death
That might be really good
Reduced to drinking meth - I'd give up if I could

Though you won't hear me laughing - I know you are IRS
My wallet's empty - kill myself? - don't tempt me IRS
Is nothing left of my salary?
Cry for me
I just want to live and to be free

Gave me a re-al shafting - you sick mongrels IRS
Into debt you'll drive me - all that will survive me IRS
It's no fun
What's the point in trying to go on?
Tell me son
Though I try how can I carry on?
Once I shone
I was happy and lived for the sun
All alone
Maybe I should get me a big gun?

That's a bloody funny parady! Plus I like ABBA which makes this even funnier!

Good funny topic, though the pacing is subpar and the rhymes are hit-and-miss. Better luck getting all three together next time!
