The Lyrics

President Bush likened Iraq and terrorist groups to an axis of evil. The real axis of evil is death and taxes. So much for tax reform. I believe in less government and taxes but building up the military and going to war defeats Bushes tax reform. Does Bush have his father's lips, or what?
Death and taxes, death and taxes
Go together like an evil axis
This I tell you brother
You can't live life with out thier smother

Death and taxes, death and taxes
They're and institute you can't unaccess
Ask the undertaker
If it's tax free to meet your maker

Try, try, try to abrogate them
It's and illusion
Try, try, try and you will only come
To life's conclusion

Death and taxes, death and taxes
Go together with the war and caskets
This I tell you mothers
We can't have one without the other

I think I have seen this parody title to TOS before. That doesnÂ't take anything away from this parody (though you might wanna go check for it to do some personal comparison, I would) but since there is another parody today based on the full song and with full out LOL factor I'm giving this 444.

I wouldn't mind paying taxes if I knew they were going to a friendly country.
