He's Your Uncle Not Your Dad

He's your uncle not your dad, he's the best friend you ever had
So come on dig, dig, dig give until it hurts
Just remember Pearl Harbour

(The Alamo and nothing could be worse)

He's your favourite relative and he needs a lot to live
So just bring, bring, bring everything until you bleed

(And he'll send back what he don't need)

If your naughty forms are forged he's your salvation
By deprivation of temptation

(Stocks and bonds I hear are not deductable)

Oh say can you see if there's anything left for me
When he calls you as he may do
Don't be frightened red white and blue
Just be thankful you don't live in Leningrad
He's your uncle, not your dad

If your honest you don't have to shake and shiver
The food is lousy up the river

(It's give and take and he does all the taking)

Oh say can you see if there's anything left for me
Life has two things you can't subtract

(Death and taxes to be exact)

So just pay, pay, pay patriotically, be glad
He's your uncle, he's your uncle, not your dad
