Deep In The Heart Of Taxes

(With profuse apologies.)

The stars at night – laugh at my plight
Deep in the heart of taxes.

I pray and sigh – my gross is wide and high
Deep in the heart of taxes.

Exemptions loom – miss one, yer doomed
Deep in the heart of taxes.

Reminds me of – a couple of
Deductions, take that! Taxes.

The accountants cry – ki-yip-pie-yi
Deep in the heart of taxes.

The late folk rush – midnight filing crush
Deep in the heart of taxes.

The dependents wail – Dad’s off to jail
Deep in the heart of taxes.

The payers bawl – and bawl and bawl
Deep in the heart of taxes.

Original Song with Lyrics at YouTube: Deep In The Heart Of Texas
