​My Audit Test

Comments Views

And now, for your listening enjoyment, a Lady Gaga inspired audit song. Maestro - start up the band.

​​I want to test ‘em just the way the standards say.

Sample, check the totals, add ‘em, make them all agree. (I love it.)

Audit intuition leads me to the things I need.

And after I’ve got proof they’ll have no choice but to agree.


 

Oh o-oh oh oh, o-o-o-o-o-oh

I’ll shut them up, show them what I’ve got.

Oh o-oh oh oh, o-o-o-o-o-oh

I’ll shut them up, show them what I’ve got.


 

I’ve done my, I’ve done my,

Yes, completed my audit test.

(She’s got to have a finding.)

I’ve done my, I’ve done my,

Yes, completed my audit test.

(She’s got to have a finding.)

 

A-a-a-audit test, a-a-audit test,

A-a-a-audit test, a-a-audit test.


 

I wanna check their books; flaws won’t be hard to see.

A little testing and you know where it will lead. (I love it.)

They think they’ve hidden their mistakes and smoking guns.

But when it’s audit work, if it’s easy it isn’t fun.


 

Oh o-oh oh oh, o-o-o-o-o-oh

I’ll shut them up, show them what I’ve got.

Oh o-oh oh oh, o-o-o-o-o-oh

I’ll shut them up, show them what I’ve got.


 

I’ve done my, I’ve done my,

Yes, completed my audit test.

(She’s got to have a finding.)

I’ve done my, I’ve done my,

Yes, completed my audit test.

(She’s got to have a finding.)

 

A-a-a-audit test, a-a-audit test,

A-a-a-audit test, a-a-audit test.


 

I won’t tell you that I buy it. It’s a riot. ‘Cause your bluffin'

With your puffin’. I’m not lying; I’m just stunnin’ with the truth I’m gunning.

Just like a witness at the Senate, take the fifth before I leak it out.

I promise this, promise this,

Check my work 'cause it’s marvelous


 

I’ve done my, I’ve done my,

Yes, completed my audit test.

(She’s got to have a finding.)

I’ve done my, I’ve done my,

Yes, completed my audit test.

(She’s got to have a finding.)


 

A-a-a-audit test, a-a-audit test,

A-a-a-audit test, a-a-audit test,

A-a-a-audit test, a-a-audit test,

A-a-a-audit test, a-a-audit test.
