Carolina Blues

A proposito della riforma fiscale “meno tasse per tutti per i ricchi” che Donald Trump sta introducendo in questi giorni negli USA…
I got my income tax this mornin'
Yes, and it's gotta be paid
I got my income tax just this morning
Yes, and it's gotta be paid
It's a shame, it's a shame
No one taxes what my boss 'as made

Tax on my electric, tax on my gas
I'll soon be paying tax on my yes, yes, yes
I got my income taxes this mornin'
Yes, it's got be paid
It's a shame, it's a shame
No one taxes what my boss 'as made

I went to buy a pack of cigarettes, taxes up three cents
Walked out my backyard, they put a doggone tax on my fence
I got my income taxes this morning
Yes, it's gotta be paid
It's a shame, it's a shame
No one taxes what my boss 'as made

Tax on my electricity, tax on my gas
I'll soon be paying tax on my yes, yes, yes
I got my income taxes this morning
Yes, and it's gotta be paid
Well it hurts me, yes it do
Though they forget to tax my boss 'as made

I'm gonna tax it back for you...

I went to buy a cake o' soap, taxes up three cents
I walked out in the backyard, they put a doggone tax on my fence
I got my income taxes this morning
Yes, it's gotta be paid
It's a shame, it's a shame
Though they forget to tax my boss 'as made

Tax on my electricity, tax on my washing machine
Soon be no tax left, boy, on a ten-dollar bill
I got my income taxes this morning
Yes, and it's gotta be paid
It's a shame, it's a shame
Though they forget to tax my boss 'as made
