Delta, Canada (PressExposure) August 31, 2009 -- Based on The MTA Song that The Kingston Trio sang a hundred years ago (or does it just seem that long), this new song tells about a person stuck at their job and unable to return home.
In The MTA Song, Charlie was stuck on the MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) and couldn't afford to get off the train due to a fare increase which they call "a burdonsome tax increase".
In The HST Song, Darry is stuck at work due to over-taxing by the government and can't afford to go home. This leads again to the "Did he ever return, no he never returned" phrase. So, they are both tounge-in-cheek protests about people having too many taxes and being stuck in unlikely situations.
The song is probably not of interest to anyone who is not Canadian but would be most interesting to people in British Columbia where the HST seems to be almost daily news.
If you are up for a little light humor, you'll find it in this song.
