The Lyrics

I hope they get the rebate to me quick enough to pay my 2007 taxes.
There's a check lies signed and addressed in the Treasury
Tomorrow for my mailbox it sails
Far away from its town of malls and statues
To my town full of shopping malls and sales
And I shall do my best to fight recession
Though the sum be rather minimal at best

I'll spend it, every cent
And I shall not be tempted, no I shall not be tempted
To stash another egg within my nest

I'll spend it, every cent
And I shall not be tempted, no I shall not be tempted
To stash another egg into my nest

In Iraq there's a wicked war a blazing
And the Democrats denounce it on TV
Even now the surrender flags they're raising
Working for Islamic Jihad victory
But there's no Republican that's fit to vote for
Yet how welcome will be this tax rebate

I'll pay my income tax
I'll pay the Feds in April, send them a check in April
They'll turn around and send it back in May

I'll pay my income tax
I'll pay the Feds in April, send them a check in April
They'll turn around and send it back in May

Though debt and taxes gather all around me
And inflation bring my checkbook to its knees
I shall use this unexpected little windfall
To buy some trinkets made by the Chinese
And when Bush returns safe home again to Texas
I shall thank him for the one thing he did well

He saved America!
And if you still believe that, you truly do believe that
I've got a Brooklyn Bridge I'd like to sell

He saved America!
And if you still believe that, you truly do believe that
I've got a Brooklyn Bridge I'd like to sell

Good thing funny isn't taxed or you'd owe the government $555
