Moira Cameron REQ: Any songs on GST(Goods & Services Tax)? (18) RE: REQ: Any songs on GST(Goods & Services Tax)? 14 Aug 98


God! Are they doing it there too? Our ex-Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney, brought in the GST (7% Goods and Services Tax) in Canada about the time the VAT in Britain was inspiring tax revolts. Unfortunately, unlike Britain, Canadians are great at complaining, but not great at organizing tax revolts. Nevertheless, the musical group I am singing with was ready to stir the masses with our own Anti-GST song.

If you are already familiar with the kids round, "Bottle of Pop" or "Fish 'N Chips 'N Vinegar", you're all set to learn this one.

"GST Round" by Ceilidh Friends (Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada)

1 GST, 2 GST, 3 GST, 4 GST 5 GST, 6 GST, 7 percent GST.

Added to our purchases Purchases, purchases Added to our purchases And it's making us mad.

Don't throw your tax at my pocketbook My pocketbook, my pocketbook Don't throw your tax at my pocketbook My pocketbook's empty!

Ok, so it's not supremely inspiring. But everyone we sang it to really got a kick out of it.

My heart goes out to you all down there. Good luck, Moira
