TAX AND SPENDING

TAX AND SPENDING
(To tune of “Love and Marriage” by Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn, first performed by Frank Sinatra in 1955 television production of Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town)

Tax and Spending
Tax and Spending
Like a movie that is never-ending
Raise a few more dollars
And, “Now let’s spend it” someone hollers.

Tax and Spending
Tax and Spending
Leads to budget deficits ascending
Argue let’s be frugal
Then someone blows the spending bugle

Promote balancing the budget
Be a good liar
Next vote – Pass a bill to nudge debt
Yet even higher

Tax and Spending
Tax and Spending
Talk of change is poppy-cock pretending
Congress has no cheap seats
So in the end
The hogs un-penned
Will tax and spend away
To keep seats.
