The Lyrics

Pay-o, pay ay ay o
Tax day come and me flat-ass broke
Pay, they say pay, they say pay-o
Took my donut and left me a hole

Work all year and pay galore
(Tax day come and me flat-ass broke)
Then in April they want some more
(Tax day come and me flat-ass broke)

Come Mr. Tax Mon, tally me taxes
(Tax day come and me flat-ass broke)
Come Mr. Tax Mon, tally me taxes
(Took my donut and left me a hole)

They hire a genius for numbers crunch
(Tax day come and me flat-ass broke)
They leave poor man without a hunch
(Tax day come and me flat-ass broke)

Pay, they say pay, they say pay ay ay o
(Tax day come and they take my home)
Pay, they say pay, they say pay ay ay o
(Tax day come and they take my home)

An awful form with lines and boxes
(Tax day come and they take my home)
IRS men a bunch of foxes
(Tax day come and me flat-ass broke)

Pay, they say Pay, they say Pay ay ay o
Tax day come and me flat ass broke

I think IRS agents are more like wolves than foxes, but I get your point. As Mark Twain once said, "the only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin."
