Paycheck, Johnny - Me And The IRS Lyrics



Well you can tell them boys at the IRS
This ol' boy, hell I've had enough
The way the big man rakes it in
The little man coughs it up

Well the bite keeps gettin' bigger
And the paycheck keeps gettin' small
You know the IRS, they ain't gonna rest
Till they think they've got it all

They got the bluff on a lotta folks
But honeys I ain't one
From now on, I'm keepin' my pay
Ain't gonna deduct nothin'
Take the 1040 forms and shove 'em
Straighten out their own damn mess
You can write me off
'Cause I ain't givin' a dime to the IRS

How can I keep my arm around my woman
With Uncle Sam's hand in my pants?
If I can't pay the fiddler
Well how the hell am I gonna dance?

I don't mind kickin' in my fair share
I might even back up and say yes
But the big man plays while the little man pays
So the hell with the IRS

They got the bluff on a lotta folks
But honeys I ain't one
From now on, I'm keepin' my pay
Gonna deduct nothin'
Take the 1040 forms and shove 'em
Put 'em where the sun don't shine
You can write me off
'Cause I ain't givin' a dime to the IRS
You can write me off
'Cause I ain't givin' a dime to the IRS

    Janet M

    Tpathrules

    Seven

  3. Jason Nabors

    Just as most people can't tell their employer to shove it, once again JP gives voice to what people want to say but can't. How many of us would like to not give a dime to the IRS?

  4. Lionel Ducote

    I had a beer in the same bar in "Hillsboro, Ohio" where he shot that guy. My mother and father in law lived there. .

    charles coffell

    Hahaha!!!

  5. row bart

    Oh yeah yeah

  6. marty mcfly

    This would be banned now i suppose democratic assholes

  7. Edo Flo

    Awe come-on fellas, we got to support the corporate welfare system. It ain't easy keeping 6 houses and 3 mistresses . Big yachts and private jets cost money. Have a heart and quit your bitching. Take a second job.

  8. Texas Miller

    F*** the IRS

  9. William Dukane

    Ironically, Johnny Paycheck filed for bankruptcy in 1990 after he had problems with the IRS.

    Edo Flo

    Poor Guy died broke. love him, RIP

  10. Alexander Glass

  11. Danalynne Johnson

    I've loved this song since it first got air-play. Never found it on an album however.

    Alexander Glass

    Danalynne Johnson God bless the internet

    Adam Jernigan

    Danalynne Johnson its pn his greatest hits 16 volume

  12. Mushinzenkoans

    I have loved JP's music since I was 11 years of age. Granted, that was 1977, so I was a little bit late. But, better late than no Paycheck.

    Texas Miller

    Dann right I love outlaw country music ain't nothing else better

  13. Ras Cornett

    I wish the government people had to live on
    small amount of money that elder and the sick do they would not know how to pay there bills and buy food or any thing else

    Cintia

    Ras Cornett I agree with that completely as well as taking out the private enterprise sector that sucks down over one-hundred billion tax dollars from an administration that wants to provide their welfare, so they can have stock buying, merger money. STOMP ALL WELFARE, INCLUDING CABLE COMPANIES, PHYSICALLY WITH A WRECKING CRANE.

    No more welfare for ANYBODY, any business, or person. NONE!!

  14. Ras Cornett

    I wish the government people had to live on
    small amount of money that elder and the sick do they would not know how to pay there bills and buy food or any thing else

  15. Orlando Tax

    This is a great song.

  16. Dan Cage

    Johnny tells it like it is. Great song thanks for sharing.

    Gary Kerns

    @Dan Cage You're 100% right. Ole Johnny really does tell it like it is. I liked the whole song, but especially the end where he said you could take what they spend studying the sex habits of the South American swamp rat (if there is such a creature). I also like the instrumentation.

  17. mkl62

    Are listening to this, Ms. Lois?

  18. Maximus Wolfe

    Fuck the US government in general-google private property anarchism-The truly American spirit. 

    frank patitucci

    Rambling Outlaws

    AnarchoCapitalism is amazing

  19. Phil Grimes
