Michael Bolton Performs IRS Love Letter On 'Last Week Tonight'

(Radio.com) Wednesday's the tax deadline in America. Are you ready? Everything squared away already or about to be? If you're one of likely millions of Americans who will be doing things incredibly last minute, Last Week Tonight and Michael Bolton have a song for you.

On Sunday night's episode of John Oliver's HBO talk show, he brought out Bolton to croon a new song written about tax season. It starts off innocently enough, with delicate piano and Bolton's croon of "I could hardly believe it/ When I heard the news today," seemingly straight out of some sort of Lee Greenwood-esque patriotic anthem.

After awhile, two things are clear: first, this is a parody of "How Am I Supposed to Live without You?"; second, it's a love letter to the IRS. "But we need you real bad/ Though it's clear nobody likes you," Bolton sings. "You're the anus of our country, don't you know?" Read more and watch it here.
