Taxman

George Harrison
Album: Revolver

BUY THIS CD AT AMAZON.COM

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.

Information

John said that he had helped George write a few of the lines to this song and was disappointed that it wasn't mentioned in George's autobiography "I, Me, Mine". George wrote this when he discovered that he wasn't as rich as he should be due to the amount of tax he paid. He said: "We were actually giving most away in taxes. It was and still is typical. Why should this be so? Are we being punished for something we didn't do?"
