The Beatles Philosophy

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.

Taxman, 1966 from Revolver.

"'Taxman was when I first realised that even though we had started earning money, we were actually giving most of it away in taxes. It was and still is typical."   George Harrison, composer.
