The Beatles Lyrics

One, two, three, four
One, two (one, two, three, four)

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

(If you drive a car, car) I'll tax the street
(If you try to sit, sit) I'll tax your seat
(If you get too cold, cold) I'll tax the heat
(If you take a walk, walk) I'll tax your feet

'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

Don't ask me what I want it for
(Ah, ah, Mr. Wilson)
If you don't want to pay some more
(Ah, ah, Mr. Heath)
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die (taxman)
Declare the pennies on your eyes (taxman)
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me (taxman)

Essa música tem várias curiosidades interessantes:

O John Lennon ajudou o George em alguns trechos de música, principalmente em: (If you try to sit, sit) I'll tax your seat
(If you get too cold, cold) I'll tax the heat
(If you take a walk, walk) I'll tax your feet

O solo maravilhoso de guitarra dessa música foi feita pelo Paul McCartney, porque o George tentou vários takes, e nada saía. E o Paul em um take só fez ela

Essa música tem uma fortíssima inspiração na música tema da série do Batman de 1966, principalmente pela forma de cantar Taxman

@Felipe Mustafa sua pontuação com a ajuda que John deu na letra foi muito boa. Mas, acho que ele ajudou mais que isso. Essa é a letra original que George escreveu:

“Now, let me tell you how it will be.
There’s one for you, nineteen for me.
Cos I’m the Taxman, yes I’m the taxman-
You may work hard trying to get some bread-
You won’t make out before you’re dead-
Cos I’m the tax man - yes I’m the tax man
And you’re working for no-one but me –
So give in to conformity.
Now what I let you keep for free –
Won’t take long to get back to me –
Cos I’m the taxman – yes I’m the taxman.”

Depends whose history you speak of.. it’s a BIG world out there you know.

I was 6 years old and was allowed to buy one thing with my allowance money. I spotted an album on CD called The Beatles: REVOLVER. Bought it for 15 dollars and played it in the car on the way home. I'm 23 now and still in love with The Beatles. This album changed my life. Thank you John, Paul, George, and Ringo!


You picked their best album!


@Lisa Parsons I'm 62 (DOB 12/1960) & used to listen to them back in the 70's also. Sorry you lost (for now) you brother, I lost me little sister & a older brother, I know the feelings. I hope I got quite a few years in me, and you also. Once I was listening to Bob Dillon on the tv, & one of my older brothers was making fun of me for watching them, play, well I got the last laugh, I found out later what a star he'd become, so I was not alone in liking his songs. Nether of us knew who he was at the time. Take care.

@thewhiteelephant You bet ...take care ..
