The Lyrics

Some politicians and political ideas turns out to be more wacky than others, over here we recently saw the forming of an officially all female and all out feministic party that initially scored some 15 percent in the polls thanks to racist type ideas, like that men should have to pay an extra tax so that more money could be transferred to women with low income in the public sector. When confronted with the logically obvious that the majority of those women are married to men, and hence would suffer from such a tax too, number two in the party hierarchy stated roughly that all women who sleep with men are traitors to their own sex and deserve to be taxed as men as well. Needless to say she has now resigned and they don't score 15 percent any more, (though they have recovered a bit and might spawn more parodies next year when we have an election). Anyway, what this intro leads up to is my fascination for the idea of a man tax. We don't have any flat taxes in Sweden, all taxes are increased progressively with the measured person's resources, so how would they determine the man tax for an individual case? What's the measure of a man?
I'll pay my taxes with a smile
I will pay more than any man in history
And though I know it's a forced access-orgy
I'll pay my taxes with a smile

You know I'll love it when collectors scout
And when they have to bring the yardstick out
I'll pay my taxes with a smile

Poor's the miser who's down
Poor's the miser who's really down
Poor's the miser who's down
Poor's the miser who's really down

I'll pay my taxes with a smile
I'll feel so good when I can pelt along
I'll want revisioning to take soo long
I'll pay my taxes with a smile

(Organ solo)

I'll manly sign up for the flack
My one discomfort 'be the doggone jack!
I will in-crementally tell you that
I'll pay my taxes with a smile

It's public measure by the time they're through
Legerdemain to grasp my major jew'ls
I'll pay my taxes with a smile

Poor's the miser who's down
(Poor's the miser who's down)
Poor's the miser who's really down
(Poor's the miser who's down)
Poor's the miser who's down
(Poor's the miser who's down)
Poor's the misestimated clown
(Poor's the miser who's down)
Poor's the miser who's down
(Poor's the miser who's down)
Poor's the measured by his own lawn
(Poor's the miser who's down)
Poor's the miser who's down
(Poor's the miser who's down)

He can pay his one penny, as long as it's no err'

I'll pay my taxes with a smile
I'll treasure spam mail about vacuum suction
I'll hope I never get a big deduction
I'll pay my taxes with a smile

(Poor's the measured met with a frown)
I'll pay my taxes with a smile

Repeat Ad Confiscatio

Peter, please tell me you have a MP3 available for this; I've looked high and low for one over the past few days and came up blanks and I don't remember much of TOS.

Ah thanks! BTW, the link you left on my SOTM entry is coming up as a 404, can't have spaces in URLs I think.

Excellent; many great lines in here Peter. In America I believe we have an unofficial policy like this: its called prostitution! j/k Oh, good question too. Tax by the inch? lol I could see the women now: "Yeah, [insert any male Sweedish name here] didn't have to pay much this year. "Well, you know what they say about a man who doesn't have to pay much in taxes!"

On a economic note; you don't have sales tax in Sweeden?

Great original and a hilarious parody. I only wish Garbage's subsequent albums were as good as their first. They just totally fell apart when it came to songwriting...

You make me think of another fellow who pointed out that, concerning enlarged manhood, well, it ain't all that: www.thephatphree.com/Features.asp?SectionID=11&StoryID=1149&LayoutType=4.­481592039801

Thanks! So many possible comments here/there, let's just say I loved the "There are three inches of me that is still a virgin" line best.
