The Lyrics

How Politicians love to spend our money

They're after your paycheck
Right before you take home your net
the tax raisers
(tax raisers)

All you workers
who get a check
if you really care

Then all-l-l-l you workers
you better beware

Congress just want
to raise your taxes

for pork barrel spending
and Limo-taxies

FICA payments
just give me fits
aiming straight for my check
and I know they won't miss


they're after your paycheck
right before you take home your net
the tax raisers
( tax raisers)

every evening just around
election time
they a-a-always call
when I'm ready to dine,yeah

they keep asking
for a donation
I can never keep up
with the high cost of living

what can I do
When I have so much debt
wish they wouldn't
take so much cash........
out of my check

they're after your paycheck
right before you take home your net
tax raisers

high ,high
might be a liberal
a tax and spend liberal,yeah

That's what you do when you have a budget deficit: YOU RAISE TAXES! You'd have to be stupid to do otherwise. Especially when you've got a war (or two, or more) to pay for! You start with the rich, and if that's not enough, well... "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." But then, Georgie Bush is no Jack Kennedy. Hell, by going into Iraq when everybody thought it was a stupid idea, he's not even a George Herbert Walker Bush!
