The Lyrics

The brain slips gears..and near explodin'
Just took a Xanax..hope it's loadin'
Coffee enough to fill..ten truckers roadin'
My dog slinks out the door..lookin' like Charles Grodin
And even my caged canary..is not song throatin'
Scanning booklets over and over and over again, my friend,
Stress beads on my sleeve..here on the eve of deductions

Hope IRS grants what I'm trying to claim
Mixed are tears and fears..in this frustrating game
I'm just one button push..from completely insane
And I'm all dripping wet..does the ceiling leak rain?
If I list my little boy..can I deduct his toy?
These forms, I'm goin'..over and over and over again, my friend,
I'll need a hair weave, after this eve of deductions

Yeah, my blood's on boil,..there's a heart attack waitin',
I'm in a camp of concentratin',
Can I list Aunt Ruth..here for a year's vacation?
What about nights at "Scores"..and lap dance gyration
Might not allow it..as a loss from inflation
The big bucks I spent were not imitation,
You'd think there'd be spaces to fit such occasion
Paging files.. goin' over and over and over again, my friend,
More reasons to grieve on this eve of deductions..

Urges to go to the kitchen, break china,
Can't the IRS give ground..Obama caught Osama..
Why do they need my cash..for more trips to space,
Do I send returns to the same old place?
Guess I could juggle books..but jail, I can't face
Better bury such thoughts..audits, fines, disgrace
It's guys like my neighbor who can lie with no trace
Been checkin' files over and over and over again, my friend,
Whew, done..can't believe..on eve of duductions
Oh no!..the dog just heaved on my forms
On the eve of duductions...

A good rendition of one of my all-time favorite songs. The Russians aren't pointing missiles at us so much anymore, which leaves the real terrorist threat to the American people as the IRS. I have about 40 recorded versions of the original song, and a few answer records. This would make a nice addition to the set.

I had to laugh at this because it's way too true, all those debates one goes through in one's head when trying to decipher the indecipherable.

Perfect OS for the subject, expertly paced and very, very funny in that "I feel your pain" kind of way. 'Specially like the "I'm in a camp of concentratin' " line. Another masterpiece, and well worth a 555 (hope the taxman won't take a big chunk out of that too!)
