LYRICS for “Would you Tar and Feather a Tax Collector?” :

CHORUS 1:
Would you tar and feather a tax collector?
Like they did in days of old?
Would you tar and feather a tax collector?
For breaking in and stealing your gold?

CHORUS 2:
GET OUT AND FIGHT!
GET UP AND FIGHT!
STAND UP AND FIGHT!
FOR YOUR RIGHTS!
GET OUT AND FIGHT!
GET UP AND FIGHT!
WAKE UP AND FIGHT!
FOR YOUR RIGHTS!

The American Revolution was mostly
fought for just two things:
taxation and trying to take our guns.

My great great great great great great grand dad
died in that war.
He took a musketball from King George’s goons.

A few years later, in 1791 the federalist gub’mint
sent us the bill for that war
with even higher taxes than before
That federalist traitor Alexander Hamilton
acted like the new King George.

He tried to take honest money from the distillers.
But the brave men of Pennsylvania didn’t want a nanny state
so they tarred and feathered a tax collector

(CHORUS 1)
Flash forward 219 years
The new Alexander Hamilton is trying the same plan
but on a much larger scale
The gub’mint’s much bigger

And most people are sheep
waiting to be sheered in their sleep

(CHORUS 1)

The gub’mint buys guns by the millions
Meanwhile, they’re taking ours.
What do you think they’ve got in mind?

I’m not saying “it’s time.”
I’m just sayin’ ya gotta look behind.
Those who ignore history
have no future.
And King George wants us all subdued.

Middle 8:
It’s hard to watch my country being destroyed
It makes me very sad.
When I’m sad I don’t feel sorry for myself.
The sorrow turns to anger, which
hardens into steely reserve.

(CHORUS 2)
