The Lyrics

As far as I know only two modern Swedish words have gotten themselves into the English language - "ombudsman" and "smorgasbord" – and hence this parody is one part of a themed bitty ditty two-piece project on those words, both set to songs from Metallica's first album "Kill 'em all" from 1983. (So should I discover later that there are more words, then I can build from there).
Thieving and lying, stuffing you taxes
Once you have paid up "The Man" will know no shame
Lies from their offices soon goes to prove
They just want more levy, your vote and acclaim

Ombudsman, as such I settle strife
You can't brake laws any other way
Ombudsman, a guy who can't go fast
But'am here to see that you're OK!

If you're nonunion and off the communion
I'm writing down for you whatever is your case
Getting my kicks by commuting at nine
Making just progress at minuscule pace

Rotor blades, been cutting of your head?
Here's a pencil, file a full complaint!
Botox pain, your face is hard as lead?
It's no govern-mental thing, it ain't!

Them people who sent you did they hap to mention
"Bureaucracy Seesaw" is my middle name
You'll never tax lower so get with the program
"The Man" is a mother' and it's all the same

Ombudsman, as such I live my life
I'm a-wake on any given day
Ombudsman, the guy you can't go past
I'm your red tape day tripper, OK?

I was close to a 444 on this, but difficulty upped the pacing/overall here. Would have liked to seen a rhyme with "dying" in the first line as well, but this is still very good for this OS, and gratz for the first submisission as well.

Good song. Could use some better rhyming. 4-5-5
