about

If you think the bureaucracy shouldn't play politics; or just really dislike the IRS - this song's for you. (For CD's, please contact me.)

lyrics

I’m having trouble with the IRS
But it’s not taxes causing the unrest
But the blatant attacks by political hacks
Trying to silence what I still believe.
I always thought in the land of the free
We could express our ideology
Without being construed as corrupt or confused
By a rogue, bullying agency.

No, Mr. President, I do not believe
That you have the right to misuse bureaucracy.
When I was young I was told they work for both young and old –
Yes, for all of the citizenry.
No, Mr. President, I do not believe
In the IRS enforcing on me
Illegal laws our Congress never foresaw
‘Cause they came from your pen and your chats!
No! Mr. President stop! We want our country back.

I’m having trouble with your rule of law
Where you enforce only what you recall
Where you ignore what you like and rewrite what you might –
And do nothing constitutionally.
I believe in equal powers in our land
But you’ve proven that that is a sham.
You do whatever you like – like a “king-royal” might,
But as your boss, I think you should be canned!

No, Mr. President, I do not believe
That you have the right to misuse bureaucracy.
When I was young I was told they work for both young and old –
Yes, for all of the citizenry.
No, Mr. President, I do not believe
In the IRS enforcing on me
Illegal laws our Congress never foresaw
‘Cause they came from your pen and your chats.
No! Mr. President stop! We want our country back.

(Repeat Chorus)

End:
No! Mr. President stop! We want our country back.
No! Mr. President stop! We’ll take our freedom back.
No! Mr. President stop!
