The Lyrics

Best Deal anywhere! New special ingredient "trickle-up economics" gives extra zing to this product. Cures recession, cancer, unemployment, rheumatism, state budget crises, gout, deficits, broken bones, falling polls, *shrinks your bin Laden* while ENHANCING your own masculinity and electability!!! Order now!!! Lack of future wars or an increase in common sense or math skills could limit this one time offer!!! Those who forward this to 10 friends will be recognized as good patriotic lovers of America, while those who delete it will be recorded by Bill Gates' e-mail tracking system as traitors and Frenchies! In addition, today only, we have a special musical bonus package.Why... ...because I can.
They're laying off the teachers
And screwin' kids again
And all he wants is lower tax, tax
Ain't had such deficits since back in Reagan
And all he wants is lower tax
Closin' down hospitals, and health care fails
And all he wants is lower tax
They let folks out early from local jails
And all he wants is lower tax
Laid off public workers increase the numbers of poor
And all he wants is lower tax, tax, tax
While wealthy and the privileged complain and ask for more
And all he wants is lower
All he wants is lower tax, tax
Can't face the facts
He can't see the meek, thrown into the street
He helps the wealthy
He gets their tax down
All he wants is low
All he wants is lower tax

Well they've laid off some firefighters
In the locus of New York
All he wants is lower tax, tax
Bush said they were our heroes
Don't our heroes deserve work!
All he wants is lower tax
Bush says he needs billions
Because of the terrorists
And all he wants is lower tax, tax
But states aren't given money
They were long ago promised
And all he wants is lower
All he wants is lower tax
Can't face the facts

Well we never finished payin
For Reagan's fiscal bout
If these deficits get passed on
You will hear your children shout, they'll say
"Just what were you thinking Dubya"
But if they ever do, they'll need more money
Cause all he wants is lower tax
Can't face the facts
Can't see the meek
Thrown in the street
He helps his party
He gets their tax down
All he wants is lower
All he wants is lower tax
Can't face the facts
All he wants is lower tax
