The Lyrics

HMRC(UK IRS) announces tax amnesty Those with money hidden away in offshore accounts now have until June 22nd to announce their intentions to declare their assets, Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has announced. This follows a successful ruling for HMRC where the court ordered Banks to give up the names of offshore account holders most of which had not been declared to the taxman
We never wanted to cause you any sorrow
we never wanted to cause you any pain
We only wanted to see you do the right thing
You know we’re bound to get our hands on your ill gotten gains

Such a shame such a shame
We have your name have your name
But you’re to blame you’re to blame
but you know it’s wrong to stash away all your ill gotten gains

we never wanted to get you into trouble
we only want to be some kind of friend
You know wecould never steal we just recover
such a shame our amnesty must end

We have your name have your name
Such a shame such a shame
But ur to blame ur too blame
but you know it’s wrong to stash away all your ill gotten gains

I know I know I know times are changing
its time we reached out for our revenue
that means you too
you say you wanna call your lawyer
But you can’t seem to make up your mind
I think you’d better do it
or say goodbye to your ill gotten gains

Such a shame such a shame
We have your name have your name
Butyou’re to blame you’re to blame
but you know you shouldn’t stash away all your ill gotten gains

I only want t see your only want to see your only wanna see your
Ill gotten gains

Well done, Helen. The HMRC does sound just as sensitive and sympathetic as our IRS. Your parodies have been missed. Welcome back.
