The Lyrics

Read my frothing lips - Don't tax beer!!!
It's OK on large tights
And what tabloids write
And every green herbal shampoo
They can raise it on mimes
I for sure think it's time
As for spamming that's way overdue

But dammit and curse!
This is the worst!
They want one on six-pack beers!
We are not satisfied
Mankind worldwide's
Clenching hands at the word thereof

Seems like a tax - A tax too much!
Seems like a tax - A tax too much!
A tax on fermenting, a tax on the grains
This damn taxing's gonna drive us insane!
This is a tax - A tax too much!

Duuuh!

Let's have a tax on blonde's brain cell
Peeling the skin
On puns on Uranus and charms
Time told to strangers
Double for twins
And on thunder-thighs earthquake alarms

But dammit and curse!
This is the worst!
It's not we don't have the fare
Let's have one on lard
An' Pokemon cards
But please no taxation on beer!

Seems like a tax - A tax too much!
Seems like a tax - A tax too much!
A tax on distilling's a bad thing wethinks
This damn taxing's gonna drive us to drink!
This is a tax - A tax too much!

Bite me!

(Crying in the beer - Solo)

Seems like a tax (Tax too much)
Because on beer's too much (Much too much)
We really gotta stop it (In a hutch)
Hurling surely should be free (Puke and such)

This is the tax
Just the final little tax
We really need to ax
Cos all beer's as such a crutch to clutch

Seems like a tax - A tax too much!
Seems like a tax - A tax too much!
Dead in our tracks - This tax's too much!
IRS relax! - This tax's too much
Seems like a tax - A tax too much

This tax's too much!

On beer - Nonesuch!

A tax too much!

Tax!

Come on and bite me!

Duuuh!

Love it, Peter. (Should that tax on distilling be a bad thing "methinks", by any chance?). Is this part of your election manifesto, by any chance?
Peter Andersson a.k.a K1chyd - May 02, 2006 - Report this comment
Election manifesto? Absolutely! There will be no tax on beer under my reign! As for "methinks"/"wethinks" I agonized to the bottom of a bottle (or two, or three) over that one. My dictionaries do not approve of the word "wethinks", but Google gives more than 10 000 hits for it and that's good enough for me (under the influence).

Excellent, Peter. Great to sing along with the OS. 555

It didn't tax me long to decide to vote fives on this..

funny, I can't think of a single Swedish beer - or do you drink Carlsberg and Tuborg like the Danes - or is one called "Skol"?

Nice job on an OS from a little band from my hometown. In 1974, I had to help choose which local band we would spend $500 on for our high school dance. The committee was split between two choices, two unknown bands: Shadowfax and AC/DC. I had the casting vote. My exact words were "Well at least I've HEARD of Shadowfax" - still have nightmares about that - 555

Whatever happened to "I'll Pay My Taxes With A Smile"? ;-) Well, if beer does get taxed and becomes too expensive, there's always Milwaukee's Best.....

Rick, AFW and Larry: Thanx!

Stuart: We're more famous for our Vodka, especially Absolute Vodka, but if you should come across some Pripps or Spendrups... the first one's to be avoided and the other one to be approached with care.

Red Ant: "Milwaukee's Best", I take it's one of those beers that tastes better before it's destilled through the horse…

(SOTM) You must really be under the influence... of some great high-voltage rock 'n' roll! I didn't know they were planning on taxing beer. I'm not really sure if words can describe how hilarious this parody is! Clever title! 555
Cat - June 08, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Heh heh, I can see where you got the title from, it really does sound like "tax." Lots of great lines, especially the ones about blondes and Pokemon cards, and be grateful that you weren't alive here in the 20s when Prohibition was around! Excellent job.

(SOTM) Best to hear with the provided mp3...i like the adlib "shouts" parodied, too!
Red Ant - June 10, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) First, to answer your question: IMO Beast only tastes good if you don't drink it, or it's 1* above its freezing point. A lot of clever subs in here, especially "brain cell" for "angel" (I'm writing that one down!). Absolut is Swedish? I never knew that, which is odd considering how much I saw of it in my heyday.
Rick C - June 14, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Enjoyed it as well the second time around.

Those damn brits taxing us on everything, yet I have an idea... let's dump a whole bunch of tea into the sea then we'll show them who's boss!!!

(SOTM) Even though I'm not old enough to drink, I can easily congratulate K1chyd for this amazing beer parody. I wonder if he came up with the idea after a night's drinking...

(SOTM) "Bartender, this beer is taxed!" "Well, sir, we all get worn out sometimes. " This parody is quite smooth and refreshing.

SOTM - DKTOS but people like it. Clearly a lot of work went into this and it's pretty funny.
Arwen - June 27, 2006 - Report this comment
SOTM...I don't know the OS, K1...but I love to read (and smile) about something you're seemingly so passionate about...=) Nice job!
Johnny D - June 27, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) "Cos all beer's as such a crutch to clutch" ... lines like that are something I like to strive for!
Stuart McArthur - June 28, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) see above - yeah, no tax on beer, except maybe Bud - but definitely tax Pokemon cards!
