It's Deductible!

It's Deductible!
From the movie, "My Blue Heaven" (1950), starring Betty Grable and Dan Dailey,
Music by Harold Arlen, lyrics by Ralph Blane

The biggest complaint wherever we go is taxes, taxes, taxes.

The question is where do we get the dough for taxes, taxes, taxes.
Income taxes!
People running from store to store from Macy's up to Sak's,
Nobody wants to work anymore because of income taxes.
Income taxes!
This is the kind of thinking that could easily be destructible.
Haven't they learned the more they make the more there is deductible.
Deductible, deductible, deductible, deductible.
It's deductible, it's deductible.
A man can make a phone call from Jersey to the coast,
It used to be expensive but today you'll hear him boast,
It's deductible, it's deductible.
You give a pompous party, pretentious with your booze,
They break up all your furniture, what have I got to lose.
Crazy world, crazy times, love that world,
What's the difference if nothing rhymes.
It' uproarious, but it's glorious.
You're the boss and you can toss it off as loss or gain,
Why complain, it's deductible.
We're all interested in redemption, 
How do you get your maxium exemption.
The dependent must be one of the following,
Grandson, granddaughter, great-grandson, great-granddaughter,
Father, mother, sister, brother, half-sister, half-brother,
Grandfather, grandmother, nephew, niece, uncle, aunt,
Father-in-law, mother-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law,
Step-son, step-daughter, step-father, step-mother, step-brother, step-sister.
I'm telling you mister, they're deductible, they're deductible,
A Texan drills an oil well, the oil well don't produce,
The Texan doesn't worry cause he's got a good excuse,
It's deductible, it's deductible.
Producer gets an angel, producer gets a flop,
The angel doesn't worry because the flop comes off the top
Crazy world, crazy times, love that world,
What's the difference if nothing rhymes.
It's irrational, but it's national,
If you decide to take that ride and be a bride and groom,
Padded room, deductible,
Including offspring,
Elizabeth Ann and Betty Lou, Oliver, Dan, Penelope, Sue,
Jimmy, Johnny, Daisy, Harry, Randy, Ronnie, Maisie, Mary
Have all you want, they're deductible.
