    Guitars: 
    Chet Atkins Gretsch G6120-1959LTV + Vox crunch + Onko overdrive 
    Ibanez 1982 MC150FR with DiMarzio pick-ups + Vox crunch + Slash fuzz box 

    Intro.  

    1): 
    Toilin' for the company, 
    Saving for retirement,
    Think I'll have a cup of tea,
    Wond'rin' where the money went. 
    Staring at my pay-slip, 
    Skimping on my aliment. 

    2):
    They say, gov'ment's looking out for me, 
    After all, ain't it a democracy?
    But we don't want no nanny state, 
    Heavy as the hand of fate. 
    Sweatin' like a fool, 
    Chippin' into the pool, 
     

    Refrain 1): 
    Taxation, it's a vexation, 
    Vested with scant legitimation, 
    No room for ecstasy, 
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no. 
    They say, it's a necessity, 
    Payin' dues to goverment's reality, 
    No one forks out willingly, 
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no. 

    3): 
    Taxman's got you in his sights, 
    Regulations cold as ice. 
    Media are on his side, 
    Coaxin' people to abide. 
    Don't try to evade, 
    Through shady excapades. 

    4):
    Capital fleein' cross the borders, 
    Part of our global order, 
    Nation states tryin' to do a deal, 
    To bring the rogues to heel. 
    Aways was a power duel, 
    Imposing tax on revenue. 

    Refrain 2):
    Taxation, it's a vexation, 
    A cause for consternation, 
    Don't complain it's arbitrary, 
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no. 
    Cough up, pay the price, 
    Otherwise they'll fleece you twice, 
    Don't get nabbed for tax evasion, 
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no. 

    Repeat 1): 
    Toilin' for the company, 
    Saving for retirement,
    Think I'll have a cup of tea,
    Wond'rin' where the money went. 
    Staring at my pay-slip, 
    Skimping on my aliment.
