Taxman
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
(Taxman)

'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)

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 per cent 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, I'll tax the street
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold, I'll tax the heat
If you take a 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!)

It is every citizen's duty to pay their taxes to fund schools and hospitals and infrastructure projects,
no matter which side of politics is in Government.
It is ironic however, that it's always the wealthy people who complain the loudest.
" How dare you spend my money on the welfare of the filthy, dirty proletariat "
Well it's those dirty, lowlife, workers that do all the work to make the profit for the wealthy and idle rich people.
THE BEATLE'S wealth came from the pocket money of millions of adoring fans.
THE BEATLES brought joy and happiness to the world.
Multi-National Corporations bring death and destruction to people and the environment.
Some of these companies don't even pay tax, in fact our governments pay them with your money to keep their companies in the Country.
This is in order to avoid massive unemployment, minimise crime and general poverty and hardship that the Capitalist system inflicts on the population.

I'm surprised and very disappointed that George would write such a misinformed lyric.
Rich people pay Lawyers and Accountants to avoid paying tax.
The rest of us just shrug our shoulders and keep working hard to provide for ourselves and our families.
Whilst the wealthy tax avoiders drive their BMWs to their yachts.

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 per cent 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, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.

Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

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

@Congressional Research Institute 2 Likr most progressives you confuse paying taxes to huge incompetent governments with charity designed to help the poor. I vet my charities looking for sound management, low overhead and a track record of programs that actually work. Sorry but the US government fails on all three counts.

Mike Galvin

@Michael Sieger As a Democrat Jeff Bezos is not at all worried about taxes. With great fanfare the Biden administration will raise marginal tax rates but the truly rich with their armies of lawyers and accountant s will be largely unaffected which is why the very rich in US are mostly Democrats. Also the Chinese pandemic has wiped out the small business sector which was the core of the Republican party so they have little competition to fear
