The Lyrics

As you can tell by the title, the song is a tribute to those who send off their tax forms to the Internal Revenue Service at the last few minutes of April 15. I just sent mine to the post office just an hour before last night's midnight deadline.
Headache in the evening, I can't sleep
My paperwork's in a great big heap
I wrote figures all day, can't concentrate
It seems every year that I'm always late

Got my scratch paper, got my fingers and toes
How much do I owe? No one knows
H and R Block, the way I behave
I should just file for a 2 month waive

Oh no, not again
I filed so late
Can't ya understand
Procrastination
Procrastination
Procrastination
Procrastination

Tax breaks, 1040s, W-2s
Tax Day always brings me the blues
It's so hard in the middle of the week
To do simple math, 'cause my brain cells leak.

Oh no, not again
I filed too late
Can't ya understand
Procrastination
Procrastination
Procrastination
Procrastination
'Crastinate me Baby

(Instrumental break)

My spirits soar when I'm finally done
And I'm glad I didn't shoot myself with my gun
Maybe I'm lucky, maybe I'm blessed
Maybe next year I won't repeat this mess (Yeah, right!)

Oh no, not again
I filed so late
Can't ya understand
Procrastination
Procrastination
Procrastination
Procrastination
Seal it up!
Seal it up!
Send it off!

(Instrumental break)

Procrastination
Procrastination
Procrastination
Procrastination

Pro-Crastination!
Procrastination!
Procrastination!
Whew!
(fade out)
Saved until at least the audit!:)

Pacing is a bit off, but it can still be sung. Great lyrics and quite funny!
