Tax Payers Blues (Gary Callahan)

I'm sick of paying taxes, it gets worse every day,
I'm soon gonna take the taxes and give them all my pay;
Might as well give it all to them, they'll get it anyway,
I'm sick of paying taxes, but what can I say?

There's federal tax, provincial tax, municipal, too,
Every time you turn around another tax is due;
There's income tax, entertainment tax, a tax on what you buy,
They'll tax you when you're living, they'll tax you when you die.

If you are a drinking man, I tell you it's no joke,
They'll tax the liquor that you drink and the cigarettes you smoke;
An excise tax, a hidden tax, and taxes in plain view,
If they controlled the air you breathe, they would tax that, too.

There's federal tax, provincial tax, municipal, too,
Every time you turn around another tax is due;
There's income tax, entertainment tax, a tax on what you buy,
They'll tax you when you're living, they'll tax you when you die.

There's water tax, school tax, and tax on your property,
An import tax, an export tax, and now the G.S.T.
A factory tax, a luxury tax, a tax on gasoline,
They'll tax you every way they can, man, those guys are mean.

There's federal tax, provincial tax, municipal, too,
Every time you turn around another tax is due;
There's income tax, entertainment tax, a tax on what you buy,
They'll tax you when you're living, they'll tax you when you die.
