You’ll Never Pay Too Much

Vol. 37 No. 4 | August 2018


(To tune of, “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, from the 1945 Broadway musical show Carousel.)

When you fear a tax storm,
When those ill-winds blow,
Looming tax-clouds can give a big fright.

You’d be wise to consult
With a Tax-Law Pro
So you’ll not worry sleepless all night.

Tax law has no heart.
Tax lawyers are smart.
And they come through in the clutch.

Tax law, tax law—
The tax lawyers know.
So, you’ll never pay too much.
You’ll never pay too much.
