PUT A BUCK IN YOUR POCKET, AND GIVE ONE TO UNCLE SAM – 2015

Here’s  a repeat of my April 15th anthem to all tax filing procrastinators who need a stiff drink before dropping their returns in the mailbox.

PUT A BUCK IN YOUR POCKET, AND GIVE ONE TO UNCLE SAM
(To the tune, “That’s One for My Baby, and One More For the Road,” by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer)

Set ‘em up Steve.
It’s April the fifteenth, tax filing eve.
I’ve got the form here,
But need a little booze, to loosen the fear.
For this line where it shows
how much one owes,
put me on edge, “damn!”
You put a buck in your pocket,
and give one, to Uncle Sam

Now don’t get me wrong.
All my patriotic feelings run strong.
The fervor feels nice.
But wish that could feel it, for half of the price.
It’s like you’d offer a meal.
But not if you feel
they would hog the whole ham.
You put a buck in your pocket
and give one to Uncle Sam.

Where’s it all going?
The government keeps growing.
It just grows and it grows.
We keep on sowing.
Without ever knowing
where it all goes.

Well that does it Steve.
The post office is closing, so I’ve got to leave.
Thanks for the cheer.
I probably will see you, this time next year.
That is, assuming that I’m
not serving some time,
If I get in a tax jam.
Put a buck in my pocket
and give none to Uncle Sam.

You put a buck in your pocket,
and good luck with Uncle Sam.
