The Lyrics

Sorry for any mispelled words. I submit my material at kinko's and don't have time to spell check. I hope this makes sense to you.
Sense and Dollars, Sense and Dollars
Rub shoulders with the wealthy schollars
This I tell bank tellers
You can't buy brains without a seller
(Anybody got any brains for sale?)

Sense and Dollars, Sense and Dollars
They're a partnership of starch pressed collars
Ask the Chinese laundry
And they will charge to press your quand'ry

Try, try, try and estimate them
It's a brain teaser
Try, try, try and you will pay a tax
Two cents to Ceaser

Sense and Dollars, Sense and Dollars
They're left destitute in slums of squalor
Ask the mogal slumlord
And he hill toast his life of comfort

Try, try, try to litigate him
He's got no scruples
Try, try, try and he will only jump
Through city loop holes

Sense and Dollars, Sense and Dollars
Lash together like a ship and bollards
This I tell you sea brains
You can't school fish without a net gain

Don't forget property taxes. It is like paying rent on property you have paid for.

And don't forget the sur-tax that The People's Republic of Taxachusetts had --- a tax on your tax --- no kidding.
