New IRS Theme Song?

TaxlogoOur sister blog Chinese Law Prof Blog, edited by Donald C. Clarke (George Washington), posted this translation of a motivational song for Chinese tax collectors: 

The Motherland Is in My Heart
(From Zhongguo Shuiwu (Chinese Taxation), No. 3, 1990)

Proudly and with deep feeling

The national emblem is on my cap
And the motherland is in my heart.
We are glorious tax workers.

A historic mission is on our shoulders:
To collect wealth for the Four Modernizations of the State,
To promote the flourishing of the economy.
We do not fear difficulties or dangers,
We go throughout all the towns and villages;
We do not fear difficulties or dangers,
We go throughout all the towns and villages.

The national emblem is on my cap
And the motherland is in my heart.
We are glorious tax workers.

A sacred responsibility is on our shoulders:
To struggle for the administration of taxes according to law,
To stand at our post in order to see that policies are strictly followed.
We have a thousand stratagems
For stopping tax evasion;
We have a thousand stratagems
For stopping tax evasion.

The national emblem is on my cap
And the motherland is in my heart.
We are glorious tax workers.

An exalted faith is in our hearts:
To devote ourselves to socialism,
To strive for the cause of tax collection.
We are willing servants of the people
And vigorously promote honest practices;
We are willing servants of the people
And vigorously promote honest practices.
