The Taxman In Song

The Taxman by The Beatles

Let me tell you how it will be
There’s one for you, 19 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
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
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”

Taxman by Lucky Dube

I pay my gardener
To clean up my garden
I pay my doctor
To check out da other ting
I pay my lawyer
To fight for my rights
And I pay my bodyguard
To guard my body
There’s only one man I pay
But I don’t know what I’m paying for
I’m talking about the taxman

What have you done for me lately
Mr taxman?

You take from the rich
Take from the poor
You even take from me
Can’t understand it now
I pay for the police
To err… I don’t know why
‘Cause if my dollar was good enough
There wouldn’t be so much crime
In the streets
They tell me you’re a fat man
And you always take and
Never give

What have you done for me lately
Mr taxman?”

Ain’t Gonna Pay My Taxes by Your Mind Is A Weapon

I ain’t gonna pay my taxes
Gonna buy myself a gun
Nah I ain’t gonna pay my taxes
Gonna buy myself a gun

I ain’t gonna pay my taxes
Gonna buy a gun instead
And when the taxman comes a’knockin
Gonna shoot the bastard dead

They ain’t gonna pay for healthcare
Gonna spend it all on guns
They ain’t gonna pay for schooling
Gonna bomb Afghanistan
They say they ain’t got money
To feed and home the poor
While Baghdad lies in pieces
Blurry eyed in shock and awe

So I ain’t gonna pay my taxes
Gonna buy myself a gun
Nah I ain’t gonna pay my taxes
Gonna buy myself a gun

Gonna build myself an army
Of the disaffected ones
Gonna build myself an army
Of the disillusioned sons
Gonna build myself an army
Of the disaffected
Gonna build myself an army
Of one

Nah I ain’t gonna pay my taxes
Gonna buy myself a gun”
