The lost lyrics have been found, here:

They come on April 15th dear,
To take away our gold.
Tax men unmoved by plea or tear,
It makes your blood run cold.

Oh income tax! You break our backs,
The government takes all.
A thief by any other name
Would never have such gall.

I found a 30-second audio sample of "Don't Put Taxes on the Women." It can be found here:'+Home.htm

This is my write-in vote. It's catchy and relevant.

Hillary didn't like my suggestion of "The Bitch is Back," so I don't think my opinions are valued by some women. However, in doing my extensive google research, I did find this song title that the ladies may like:

Gibb Todd\ Don't Put Taxes on the Women\ Goin' Home\ Compass

Anyone who doubts the Beatles' "Tax Man" is the king of odes to tax collectors -- not to mention the most melodic and danceable tax tune -- is not welcome in civilized circles.

Are you accepting write-ins? Robert Cray's "1040 Blues." Joe Tex's "Men Are Gettin' Scarce" has a great verse in it about taxes. Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)" speaks to the subject as well.

Mad magazine once had a funny parody song, sung to the tune of "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear." It went:

"They come on April 15th, dear
To take away our gold..."

Wish I could remember the rest.
