Accountant for the Government

I’d hate to be an accountant
For the Federal Government
And having to keep track
Of all the money that’s spent

Billions of dollars’ given
To aid in disaster relief
Rebuilding all the homes
Destroyed beyond belief

And millions of dollars spent
To keep the banks from failing
From making bad investments
Their customers were ailing

Millions of dollars’ given
To help other countries in need
But not enough dollars spent
On our people to house and feed

And military spending
Is always out of sight
To countries far away
Our troops will have to fight

Their budget isn't balanced
And the deficit is high
But they'll collect our taxes
Until the day we die
