What can I say? Bookkeepers and Accountants have my respect.
Paperwork, paperwork fills my head
Paperwork, paperwork fills me with dread
How can such a paperless society
Still involve so much paper for me?
Bills to pay, invoices to send
Paperwork will send me round the bend.
Pay this tax, pay these wages
Pay it now, not in stages
Bank interest, Loan interest, GST
None of this gets done for free
Staring at my computer with bleary eyes
More headaches are my prize
Profit & Loss, YTD
Understanding it all is the key
Don't forget your quarterly BAS
These can all kiss my….
(I never said I had any class!)
Enter that and file this
No receipts would I dare miss!
Neatly filed reports are my prize
(I kid you not, I tell no lies!)
If I ever go on holiday
As I order coffee at a café
My thoughts would be, "Can I get a receipt for that?"
And "Can I claim it on my tax?"
Money, money makes the world go 'round
(Or so I've been told on advice that's sound)
I'm sure if all the bookkeepers stopped
That advice would soon be dropped
In favour of those who master M.Y.O.B
They keep the world running for you and me!
