"When You're Filing"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

When You're Filing,
When You're Filing,
Be sure your facts are straight

No reluctance,
False deductions,
Like fishing trips and bait

If all this filing
Brings pressure and pain
Try HR Block,
Your loss is their gain..

Time for filing
Income tax filing
The IRS thanks you..

When you're claiming,
Don't try naming
Your small chihuahua "Cheers"

Though it's tempting,
Such exempting,
Could get you twenty years..

Drag out those tax forms
Icebag for your head
If there's a refund,
File online, instead..

Keep on filing,
'Cause when you're filing
Obama's thanking you...

He needs your revenue

"H & R Block" fits the meter better; I worked there for 3 tax seasons after retiring. Otherwise very funny & timely.
