The Lyrics

The Dead Kennedys always tended to the left of center...despite that, I still like them. But it seems like some right-wing parodies of their songs are long past due, especially in the age of "change you can believe in"!
Equality and progress are in our fate
Now that we have the welfare state
The brainchild of our latest President
It takes cash from those who make jobs
And gives it to some lazy slobs
It's popular but doesn't make any sense

Taxpayers making 200K
Will have to sign their lives away
Never mind that most are businesses
Who cares you worked for what you have
Others need it really bad
You've got so much, a little more you'll never miss

Oh, let's tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich to death

All hail to the White House clown
Who wants to spread the wealth around
Let's vote ourselves circuses and free bread
You've skimped and saved and sacrificed
So you could build a better life
It's time to reward those who flaked instead

When we tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich to death
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich to death

Nothing bugs the liberals less
Than punishing too much success
Encouraging more mediocrity
Newt Gingrich on the screen today
Convinced conservatives it's OK
So let's give more entitlements for free

While we tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich to death
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich to death
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich
Tax tax tax tax tax the rich to death, yeah!
