Some politicians and political ideas turns out to be more wacky than others, over here in Sweden we recently saw the forming of an officially all female and all out feministic party that initially scored some 15 percent in the polls thanks to racist type ideas, like that men should have to pay an extra tax so that more money could be transferred to women with low income in the public sector. When confronted with the logically obvious that the majority of those women are married to men, and hence would suffer from such a tax too, number two in the party hierarchy stated roughly that all women who sleep with men are traitors to their own sex and deserve to be taxed as men as well. Needless to say she has now resigned and they donít score 15 percent any more, though they have recovered a bit and might spawn more parodies next year when we have an election. Anyway, what this intro leads up to is my fascination for the idea of a man tax. We donít have any flat taxes in Sweden, all taxes are increased progressively with the measured personís resources, so how would they determine the man tax for an individual case? Whatís the measure of a man?

Iíll pay my taxes with a smile
I will pay more than any man in history
And though I know itís a forced access-orgy
Iíll pay my taxes with a smile

You know Iíll love it when collectors scout
And when they have to bring the yardstick out
Iíll pay my taxes with a smile

Poorís the miser whoís down
Poorís the miser whoís really down
Poorís the miser whoís down
Poorís the miser whoís really down

Iíll pay my taxes with a smile
Iíll feel so good when I can pelt along
Iíll want revisioning to take soo long
Iíll pay my taxes with a smile

(Organ solo)

Iíll manly sign up for the flack
My one discomfort íbe the doggone jack!
I will in-crementally tell you that
Iíll pay my taxes with a smile

Itís public measure by the time theyíre through
Legerdemain to grasp my major jewíls
Iíll pay my taxes with a smile

Poorís the miser whoís down
(Poorís the miser whoís down)
Poorís the miser whoís really down
(Poorís the miser whoís down)
Poorís the miser whoís down
(Poorís the miser whoís down)
Poorís the misestimated clown
(Poorís the miser whoís down)
Poorís the miser whoís down
(Poorís the miser whoís down)
Poorís the measured by his own lawn
(Poorís the miser whoís down)
Poorís the miser whoís down
(Poorís the miser whoís down)

He can pay his one penny, as long as itís no errí

Iíll pay my taxes with a smile
Iíll treasure spam mail about vacuum suction
Iíll hope I never get a big deduction
Iíll pay my taxes with a smile

(Poorís the measured met with a frown)
Iíll pay my taxes with a smile

Repeat Chorus Ad Confiscatio
