One of Yearwood’s latest offerings for this year’s Crop Over season “Tax-He” was released yesterday.
The song serves as a strong criticism of the recently enacted budget and makes reference to the fiasco that was the purchasing of a brand new Mercedes Benz for Prime Minister The Right Honourable Freundel Stuart soon after the said budget was proposed. An incident which raised the ire of many Barbadians and was widely condemned.
The first verse opens with the lyirics “What is going on in this country/Don’t look like a fella care bout we/When they want to fix their budget/There’s only one thing to do it seems.” “Tax-He” also features the refrain “A man in a Benz and I in a taxi…Dem in a Benz and we in a taxi.”
