taxes & ex's
a note from Texas
'bout those life's excesses

ever think about them?

hell you alway's pay 'em
they're always due
ain't that the true

you work all day
you work all night
but you still pay
they be outta' sight

try as you may
try as you might
taxes & ex's
always get paid

naw, you don't never get layed
by the govern-mint
no by her
that's for sure
but you do pay
and what can you say
'cept ok.

"bend me over...
do it agin' & agin' & agin...
for give me my sin...
when does it end"

"well, i make this much...
and you want how much?"
i guess such & such
is havin' an X (how complex)
and the govern-mint
they get their stint
(gotta' hint?)

they gotcha' comin' & goin'
they always be showin'
up when you're down
with an empty cup
they'll be around

i hope i can pay me rent
how much $$$ have i spent

but, they get their dues
that be true s
ain't no use in singin' these blues
what good does that really do's?

i guess if i choose
got nuthin' ta' lose
i could say "f**k you's"

throw me in jail
without any bail

then you can pay me to stay
locked away
then what would you get?
what would you do?
you can bet
you won't get what you get.

you'd just pay
for lockin' me away.

don't think you'd get what's due
do you?
so screw you!

i paid my due.

taxes &ex's
have you?
