Well, while you clean the kitchen, sing along to this;

*Taxation*

I can't get no real taxation
I can't get no real taxation
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm sittin' at my desk
And that man comes in with his Smell
He's tellin' me more and more
About some useless information
That doesn't give me no taxation
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what I say

I can't get no real taxation
I can't get no real taxation
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm askin' all the guilds 'Please'
And they sit there and say to me
How skint and poor they all must be
But all I get from them is moo
The milk just doesn't get to me
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what I say

I can't get no real taxation
I can't get no pay reaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

Well this city is a dunny
And I'm doin' this and I'm signing that
And I'm tryin' to get some money
But they say better come back later next week
'Cause you see I'm on a losing streak
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what I say

I can't get no, I can't get no
I can't get no real taxation
No real taxation, no real taxation, no real taxation

(and that's cleaned me out of the Stones songs I know)
