The Lyrics

In case you are anticipating a spoiled weekend preparing your Federal income tax returns, this parody may provide some perspective on the behemoth that your dollars support. Buddy Holly, RIP, passed before income tax cuts were signed by JFK, RWR and GWB. Click here for the OS.
Ev'ry day, it's a-gettin' global,
Growin' faster than a rollin' snowball;
Government will surely gum my way.
Away, EPA!

Ev'ry day, it's a-gettin' vaster;
Clever dunce head O has bred disaster.
Government's insurance sums I pay.
Away, ACA!

Ev'ry day, regulation's longer;
Ev'ry way, government is stronger.
Humble? Nay!
Do you ever long for true liberty?

Ev'ry day, it's a-gettin' nosier,
Knowin' faster than a Twitter poster.
Government will surely come to prey.
Away, NSA!

Ev'ry day seems a little wronger;
Ev'ry way, government will monger.
Bumblers they!
Do you ever long for belov'd country?

Ev'ry day, they want more exposure,
Goin' past an airline's check-in counter.
Government will surely cause delay.
Away, TSA!

Government has surely come to stay.

This is outstanding. Captures all the hassles the power-grubbers inflict on us. Love the line "Do you ever long for true liberty?".

Thank you, Patrick. It's appropriate that you commented on the 241st anniversary of "the shot heard 'round the world." I almost forgive you for not voting ... yet.
