The Bedroom Tax


The tune is Oxford Town by Bob Dylan

The Bedroom Tax

Bedroom Tax bedroom tax
Everybodys  talkin’ bout the bedroom tax
Gotta get this Government off of our backs
Cos everybody’s  talkin’ bout the bedroom tax

Bedroom Tax ma house don't fit
And the Council wants me to quit
If a don't leave soon there gonna evict
I feel like cryin' I feel like shit

Bedroom Tax bedroom tax
Everybodys  talkin’ bout the bedroom tax
Gotta get this Government off of our backs
Cos everybody’s  talkin’ bout the bedroom tax

Bedroom tax it’s so unfair
The Government wants me to share
I`d sleep in the cupboard but my aunt lives there
They drive me mad, they drive me spare

Bedroom Tax bedroom tax
Everybodys  talkin’ bout the bedroom tax
Gotta get this Government off of our backs
Cos everybody’s  talkin’ bout the bedroom tax

Bedroom tax I just won`t pay
That I.D.S. just needs a lay
I don't have the money anyway
I`m gonna fight I'm gonna stay

Bedroom Tax bedroom tax
Everybodys  talkin’ bout the bedroom tax
Gotta get this Government off of our backs
Cos everybody’s  talkin’ bout the bedroom tax

That's funny - "but my aunt lives there...." Great sense of cohesion and unsuspected whimsical fun,,,, good writing
