George Harrison RIP

Baggrunden for sangen er, at arbejderklassebandet, The Beatles, blev forbløffede over, at de skulle betale 95 pct. i skat af deres fortjeneste. Her følger lyrikken fra “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 percent appear too […]

Baggrunden for sangen er, at arbejderklassebandet, The Beatles, blev forbløffede over, at de skulle betale 95 pct. i skat af deres fortjeneste. Her følger lyrikken fra “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 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.
(Ha-ha, Mr. Wilson)

If you don’t want to pay some more.
(Ha-ha, Mr. Heath)

‘Cause I’m the taxman.
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

And 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.
