To get business into tangles
We can guarantee more angles
Then the town of Boston guarantees in beans!

Wait until we get in session,
And you'll find out what depression really means!
Ha! Ha! Ha!

THROTTLE:
On taxes,
None relaxes
When this happy group convenes!

Be it payroll, be it income-
We are gathered here to sink 'em.
Till there's no one with a nickel in his jeans.
If you think you've got taxation,
Wait for further legislation,
And you'll find out what taxation really means!
Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
