Mighty Sparrow - Paye lyrics

It's a shame, it's a shame But we have we self to blame But we have we self to blame Because we ask for new Government Now they're taking every cent Cost of living is the same It is really a burning shame Because the doctor say to pay as you earn But Sparrow say you paying to learn And me father say he sharpening the axe For when the collector come to pay off the income tax Plenty people want to cry They miss the water, the well run dry But they can't do a thing about it The money ain't going in the Doctor pocket First of all we want better schools So your children won't grow up as fools Then work for you and me That is what plenty of them can't see Because the doctor say to pay as you earn But Sparrow say you paying to learn And me father say he sharpening the axe For when the collector come to pay off the income tax Everybody is in misery But this tax ain't bothering me For I am not working anywhere So I have no income to share But Mr. this and Mr. that Who accustom with they payroll fat Is to see them shedding tears Men like De Freitas and Fernandez Because the doctor say to pay as you earn But Sparrow say you paying to learn And me father say he sharpening the axe For when the collector come to pay off the income tax When the Doctor went up to England They bluntly refuse to support his plan So there is nothing he can do Than to get it from me and you That's the law now in Trinidad If you don't like it well that's too bad Take your things and clear out today For all who working must pay Because the doctor say to pay as you earn But Sparrow say you paying to learn And me father say he sharpening the axe For when the collector come to pay off the income tax
