about

I wrote this song while procrastinating doing my taxes. I mean...Tax Day is a date that all working Americans observe - doesn't it deserve a song?!

lyrics

You know they say there are just two things
That are certain in this life
They never mention how those two things
Can cut you deeper than a knife

And I'm left to wonder how I'm ever
Gonna make ends meet this year
Because ladies and gentlemen:
Tax Day is here.

Death & Taxes
Well do you think that's fair?
'Cause I work hard for my money
And I don't really have too much to spare.
Death & Taxes
Because living can't be free.
Well all I know is that my taxes
Will surely be the death of me.

Every new year I dread the day
My boss will hand me that damn form
And when I read it I quickly notice
Somehow this year I'll just owe more

And every morning just brings me closer
To when I have to face the facts
And open up my wallet
'Cause it's time to pay the tax.

Death & Taxes
Well do you think that's fair?
'Cause I work hard for my money
And I don't really have too much to spare.
Death & Taxes
Because living can't be free.
Well all I know is that my taxes
Will surely be the death of me.
