Guns N' Roses - I.R.S. Lyrics




Ah, ah
Is it true
What they
Say of
You

Gonna call the president
Gonna call a private eye
Gonna get the IRS
Gonna need the FBI
There's not anymore
That I can do

All the reasons
That you give
I'd follow you
To where you'd lead
And if that'd be
The end of time it's true

Wouldn't be the first time I been wrong
Wouldn't be the last
I'm sure I've known
With all the rumors I could tell
Somethings didn't work so well
Well anyway it feels the same

As when you first told me you were gone
So long ago but I stil held on
Through all the motions the love and the sex
And that's the truth and here's the worst yet
Would it even mattered the things that I'd say
You made your mind up and gone anyway
And there's no use now in draggin' it on
Shoulda seen it comin' all along

Well it's true
I had
My doubts of you

Gonna call the president
Gonna call a private eye
Gonna get the IRS
Gonna need the FBI

Gonna make this a federal case
Gonna wave it right down in your face
Read it baby with your morning news
With a sweet hangover and the headlines too

Ah...
Ah...

I bet you think I'm doin' this all for my health
I shoulda looked again babe at somebody else
Feelin' like I've done way more than wrong
Feelin' like I'm livin' inside of this song
Feelin' like I'm just too tired to care
Feelin' like I've done more than my share
Could it be the way I've carried on
Like a broken record for so long

And I do
Oh, oh

Gonna call the president
Gonna call a private eye
Gonna get the IRS
Gonna need the FBI

Oh, what shall I do
If I gave my heart to you
It's such a crime, you know it's true

Gonna call the president
Gonna call a private eye
Gonna get the IRS
Gonna need the FBI

Gonna make this a federal case
Gonna wave it right down in your face
Read it baby with your morning news
With a sweet hangover and the headlines too

There's not anymore that I can do

Guns N' Roses I.R.S. Comments
  1. Big Daddy Rikka

    I love how Axl comes in at 1:04

  2. Cody Bryson

    Lol this whole album is badass

  3. S B

    So when is the next GnR album coming now that 3/5th of the original members are back?

    Nick te Lindert

    They are working on it according to Slash

  4. Coffee GAMING network

    The one song on this album Paul Tobias did he was the bands rhythm guitarist from 1994-early 2002 and Axl friend before he joined

    The Pro Towel Waver

    he was actually there from 1994-2002

  5. Nihat Kayar

    shareeeeee

  6. E A

    Not filler. But not that special either. It seems like the voice and the wall of guitars don't really interact. Sounds dislocated.

    Keith Petit de Mange

    Disagreed

    P Popovich

    For GnR it's a solid song. For almost any other rock band today, this would be their masterpiece.

  7. MICHAEL DAMATO

    Imagine living with this guy, what a fucking nightmare, no matter how good he was, his tortured mind has no bounds.

  8. Alessandra Magalhaes

    Minha música preferida do Chinese Democracy ❤❤❤

    Os Loucos Da Net

    minha também

    Fabio Henrique

    Eu gosto dessa ...Catcher in The Rye ...There was a Time ...Scraped ...O álbum é muito foda na vdd

  9. Etienne Daniel Dodge

    Y'all remember when this was leaked before the album came out?

    The Pro Towel Waver

    @unmaker why? he was giving us a demo that was better than the album version so in my eyes he's a hero

    unmaker

    @The Pro Towel Waver Because, it wasnt his to steal and give out. I care more about the artist's rights than some jerk who is just tired of waiting. Or, even, some jerks who were tired of waiting.

    The Pro Towel Waver

    @unmaker are you talking about before the album came out or after the album came out? cause im talking about IRS from 2000 that leaked a few months ago not the 2005 leak of it before the album came out

    unmaker

    @The Pro Towel Waver i was only talking about the pre release leak. that guy...

    The Pro Towel Waver

    @unmaker yeah leaks before the album comes out hurts the band but leaking demos from songs that have already been released i have no problem with but i enjoyed these leaks these past 3 months

  10. Mariano Abundiz

    The only song on the album where the Demo sounds better than the finished product, although...this version sounds different from the actual album version.

    Sharpirate

    where can i find the demo?

    Keith Petit de Mange

    It sounds the exact same as the album

  11. don't shoot the musicians

    É tão óbvio que o slash compões as linhas da guitarra, e é mais óbvio ainda que não foi ele que reproduzio 👎

  12. Cyanoh

    Taxing thots since 2008

    theKONGSTOCKS

    😂😂😂

  13. mariomanningfan

    Complete bs that Chinese Democracy gets hated on. Just a bunch of pop pundits jumping on Axl because hating this album was the in thing at the time. Axl's vocals on Better and IRS might be the best he ever sounded.

    P Popovich

    True dat!

    Nick te Lindert

    His vocals on the entire album are totally insane:) Really love it

  14. ZOOT CHANNEL

    YEAH ...

  15. Animal Expert

    This album is great

  16. Carlos BRYCH

  17. inconceivabledark

    Irs..... Inland revenue service?

    Jenn Mills

    inconceivabledark Internal Revenue Service

  18. dahiks

    best song on album, please bring back this on next tour

    Marcos Oyola

    this song is very difficult

    SJ 20

    Axl never gonna sing like this ever

  19. Donovan Score

    Yep gonna call up Stephanie Semore too

  20. Jason Vice

    I think you think I'm doin this all for my health.

  21. Beth B

    This album is Definitely under rated in my opinion there isn't a bad song on it

    Elo Kriller

    @Josh Smuin If there would be a few tracks more as a Better, Irs ,Sorry ..and if there would be some official viedo clips , CHinese would be a massive success ..

    Josh Smuin

    Not a single bad song. Only songs that are not great are chinese democracy and scraped.

    Josh Smuin

    @Elo Kriller right it can be slow but in a good pink floydish way.

    Rob Graff

    Yeah not a bad song but at least five band songs!! There are good ones on here it's like one good and one bad hardly get two decent ones in a row, lyrically album is great but it's overproduced slick autotuned

    Coffee GAMING network

    Naw catcher in the rye is horrible otherwise great album

  22. Daniel Coop

    Gonna make this a federal case gonna wave it right out in your face

  23. Berman Ramirez

    3:33 still rock

  24. Kang Rok Kim

    By the way, what does 'IRS' mean?

    Darrell M

    Internal Revenue Service

    Jeff Higgs

    Definition= people with guns that collect money from poor folks for the puppetmasters. If you don't pay,they will kidnap you and put you in a cage ,until you do.

    Darrell M

    The IRS carry guns?? Well I guess it's the United States everyone has guns

    Ash Davidson

    @Darrell M only if you refuse to pay.

  25. Meryn Rossiter

    Love Axl's voice in this track . Like wearing a comfortable pair of stonewashed jeans

  26. Ramon Leite

    Muita gente fala que chinese democracy e uma bosta mas na minha opinião é um álbum muito bom não é no nível dos outros álbuns mas ele é muito bom

    Matheus Viníciuszz

    O meu álbum favorito depois do appletite for destruction.

    Cristian Alisson

    Concordo, o album nao ficou ruim, só ficou diferente do guns traditional

    MICHAEL DAMATO

    If he's going to do all that shit for a relationship, that's a bit much, psycho.

    unmaker

    Pretty sure it's "tweak hangover" and possibly "headline stew"

    Mauricio Marschollekoitf

    @unmaker no

    Big Daddy Rikka

    MICHAEL DAMATO it’s a song

  28. s j

    But there are 83 genders pregnant men have rights too. Hillary 2016

    Coffee GAMING network

    It would be inresting to hear her naming them out

  29. Now what the hell do I put here? I ship frerard

    In this album, this song is by far the most "Guns N'Roses" type, with Axl's squeaky voice and the guitar :D

    Rob Berry

    it reminds me of paradise city ....but i dont know why but yes i agree mopst gnr type song which is why its a surprise they dont do it now live?

  30. Meryn Rossiter

    Shame Scott Weiland didn't change the face of rock by doing some duets with Axl rather than that posy velvet revolver crap

    The Ingenieros

    Fuck off.velvet revolver was one of the best bands of hard rock of the world and one of the last!!

    Rioeio Kha

    @The Ingenieros velvet revolver were dogshit

    W35 H4R3

    @Rioeio Kha lol

    Meryn Rossiter

    @Rioeio Kha Yay... So fucking true

    Keith Petit de Mange

    Axl actually tries to evolve musically which is why i think he deserves more credit than he gets as a musician

  31. The Ingenieros

    One of the best performances of axl' s voice

    Marcos Oyola

    @Total War Destroyer axl 90s cant sing that 3:32

    Total War Destroyer

    @Marcos Oyola

    I know. That's why I said he can't sing this.

    cr7raposo

    Discordo

    deivay leitner

    I agree. The whoas and ohs are a bit different. Makes it my favorite

    Big Daddy Rikka

    Marcos Oyola this is 90’s Axl. This was recorded in 1999. His voice was severely damaged from the UYI tour. Granted “damaged” to a normal persons voice is a lot different then Axls “damaged” considering his vocal chords are pretty much made of steel

  32. a te

    Dog shit

  33. whoknowswhodoesnt

    Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Elbrus, Puncak Jaya and Axl Rose.
