TESTO - Cordae - Taxes

D-D-Daytrip took it to ten (Hey)
Now, uh
Ladies and gentlemen, uh (Uh-huh)
Boys and girls, um (Yeah)
I wanna, I wanna teach y'all a lil' somethin' today, uh (Yeah, teach 'em, teach 'em)
A lil' somethin' called, uh
Check me out, listen

Okay, now, let me start to tell y'all all about taxes
How much do you pay? Well, that depends on your bracket
The fact is it's somethin' that affects all the masses
But I'll break it down into a classic
You see, the internal revenue service was discovered with a purpose
By Abe Lincoln, the rich be like, 'What was they thinkin'?'
Nah, I'm playin', but let me get back to what I was sayin'
That the concept of tax can be a lil' complicated
You see, taxes pay for roads and interstates
And our local library that they just had to renovate
Not to mention, I grew up on food stamps and Section 8
All of which co-exist because of taxes we pay
You see, nine percent of taxes help provide to the poor
But fifteen goes to defense and supplyin' the war
Now, if you ask me, I'd say that the numbers are shrewd
But we agree that with no military, we're screwed (For real)
I'll drop a lil' knowledge for whatever it's worth
Only two percent went to medical research
Now, we just gettin' started and I'll give you some more
But we all know one thing's for sure

Little homie, you better pay your tax
La-da-da-da (La-da-da-da-da)
Little homie, you better pay your tax
La-da-da-da (La-da-da-da-da)
Little homie, you better pay your tax (I don't think you hear me)
(La-da-da-da-da)
You better pay your tax (You better listen, let me tell you)
(La-da-da-da-da)
You better pay your tax (Now put your hand—, I know you hear me, come on)
(La-da-da-da-da)
You better pay your tax (Now come on, now, come on, check it)
(La-da-da-da-da)

You see, to understand the present, you must first learn the past
The American revolution all started because of tax
'Cause Britain was overtaxin' on sugar and paper
And colonies was like, 'Nah, bruh, I'ma have to see you later'
How the government spends money is all up for debate
And what you got to pay is based on how much that you make
And I know what your kids thinkin', 'What this got to do with me?'
But one day, you gon' really need that Social Security
And I always keep it real, so I'ma have to say that
Me and my family really benefit from Medicaid
So you gotta vote, bruh, and it's super beneficial
'Cause you have a say in who's your local officials
And they decide on how to slice the pie
And how to spend the budget to help the general public
So you gotta stay aware, and let's keep on discussin'
'Cause if you don't use your voice, then you don't have nothin'
And I don't have all the answers so I'll leave you with this
Do your own research, bruh, 'cause it's to your benefit
So whether you believe that taxes should be raised or lowered
It only really matters if you voted, so let me tell you

Little homie, you better pay your tax
La-da-da-da (La-da-da-da-da)
Little homie, you better pay your tax
La-da-da-da (La-da-da-da-da)
Little homie, you better pay your tax (I don't think you hear me)(La-da-da-da-da)
You better pay your tax (You better listen, let me tell you)
(La-da-da-da-da)
You better pay your tax (Now put your hand—, I know you hear me, come on)
(La-da-da-da-da)
You better pay your tax (Now come on now, come on)
(La-da-da-da-da)

D-D-Daytrip took it to ten (Hey)
