All my Excess Goes to Taxes

(Sung to the tune of "All my Exes live in Texas" by George Strait)


Written with the help of my daughter Katelyn


All my excess goes to taxes

And taxes are the thing that stop my shopping spree

But all my excess goes to taxes

And that's why I can't vacation in Tennessee


Property taxes in Indiana

Over my head do loom

Increased tax on gasoline

Always raised in June

And capital gains I can't outrun

Makes me lose my sanity

I help build the IRS temple

But I do not get the key


Oh all my excess goes to taxes

And taxes are the thing that stop my shopping spree

All my excess goes to taxes

And that's why I can't vacation in Tennessee


Then I think of that death tax

Makes the future look so grim

And it brings to mind another tax I find

Now my patience grows thin

And by governmental frustration

My wallet's feeling light

I often cry all by myself

At my finances plight


All my excess goes to taxes

And taxes are the thing that stop my shopping spree

All my excess goes to taxes

And that's why I can't vacation down in Tennessee
