The Lyrics

Traveling in a black limousine
On a city street, eyes full of Visine
I met an IRS agent, he made me nervous
He said, "I'm eating you for breakfast"

And he said
I come from the land of Taxes
Where we all carry heavy axes
Can you tell me where the X-Lax is?
You better run and see what your fax says

Buying bread from a discount bakery
Cause the IRS left me with pennies
I said, "Do you have a cucumber"?
He just smiled and gave me the IRS number

And he said
I've been to the land of Taxes
Where they're a bunch of horse's asses
And no one ever relaxes
you better run and see what your fax says

Lying in a ditch by the road
The IRS took all of my gold
I said to the man, "Can you leave me my shoes"?
He just laughed and said don't you boo-hoo

And he said,
I come from the Land of Taxes
Where we all carry heavy axes
And none of us ever relaxes
Now let me run and see what my fax says

I agree with Stray Pooch. This is a very well done, appropriate April parody. I also liked "Spinning Heel," for which you didn't enable comments.

Thanks, John. It's great to get some good comments, because it seems like if you don't write about bodily functions, you don't get many votes. But I am noticing more good parodies being written lately, and I do enjoy the conversations with people via these comments.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
