Under the Bus

By Robert S. Steinberg, Law Offices of Robert S. Steinberg, Palmetto Bay, FL

(To the tune of Moonglow by Eddie De Lange, Will Hudson and Irving Mills as first recorded by Joe Venuti and His Orchestra (1933) and later by Ethel Waters (1934), Benny Goodman Quartet (1965) and Tony Bennett & k. d. Lang (2010).)

It could be my ex-wife,
With malice au jus,
Who brought IRS here.
She’d throw me under the bus.

Or was it my partner?
No love between us.
He knows all my secrets.
He’d throw me under the bus.

Why am I shaking in my pants?
Agents like these two don’t show up on a chance.

Perhaps ‘twas my neighbor!
That jealous old cuss
Would whistle-blow on me.
He’d throw me under the bus.


Remember this warning
If any you must.
Tax fraud is no free ride
You’ll end up under the bus.
