The Devil’s Tax Advice

Robert S. Steinberg

(To the tune of Oh, Lady Be Good by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin as recorded by Ella Fitzgerald.)

When I file I always try to be good
As I know I should
I try.

Then I hear the Devil whispering low
“Don’t you be a schmo”
“Be sly.”

“Claim some false deductions.”
A fool, I follow His instructions.

And one day
I’ll maybe face a judge who will say
“You’re going away.”
“Bye Bye!!”
