Baby, there’s high tax rates outside

I really can’t stay (but baby there’s high tax rates outside)
I’ve got to go away (but baby there’s high tax rates outside)

This year has been (been hoping for tax a rate win)
So very nice (I’ll craft your tax plan, so it’s not on ice)

My family will start to worry (but with a tax plan what is your hurry)
The CRA will be pacing the floor (with their calculators fully on roar)

So really I’d better scurry (but with my tax plan, please don’t worry)
But maybe just a half-plan more (open the Income Tax Act while I think some more)

The neighbors might think (baby, the tax rates are bad out there)
Say, does your tax plan stink? (no, it’s simply stinky out there!)

I wish I knew how (how to reduce the tax rates now)
To break this spell (I’ll take your plan, and make it swell)

I ought to say, no, no, no, sir (mind if I work this tax plan to closure)
At least I’m gonna say I tried (good, since these tax rates will make you cry)
I simply must go (but baby, there’s high tax rates outside)
The answer is no (but baby, there’s high tax rates outside)

Your tax plan has been (how lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and drawn (I should be finished by dawn)

Will the CRA be suspicious? (This tax plan is delicious!)
Will the CRA show up at my door? (Well, it’s not like you’ve moved offshore) 

Will the CRA be vicious (gosh, only if they’re suspicious)
But maybe just one tax plan more (never such tax rates before)

I’ve gotta get home (but baby, you’ll pay too much tax out there)
Say, lend me your plans (you bet, you’ll need it out there)

You’ve really been grand (I thrill when I show you my tax hand)
But don’t you see? (Of course I do, the tax plan was developed by me)

There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (think of my lifelong tax sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (if you get taxed and then die)

I really can’t stay (get over that old tax plan)
Baby, there’s high tax rates
